Work. Keep digging your well.
Don’t think about getting off from work.
Water is there somewhere.
Submit to a daily practice.
Your loyalty to that

Tiny babies already smell so much like sage. You’ve only got two more weeks (2/28) to place your seedling package orders. Farmers are nothing if not planners, and it is nerve wracking, to say the least, to head blindly into the season armed with charts and projections and seeds and soil and no idea if your customers are still around.

This farm can’t be a farm without you. And me. Without us. ❤️ #phillygrown #growyourown #urbanfarmer #modernfarmer #womenwhofarm #sage #seedlings
