I have been thinking…dreaming…praying for spring…fa la la la la…while it’s still very cold outside, too cold to work on the farm I thought I would share with you some startling contrast from winter, spring and then sweet summer here on the farm.  I am taken back every time I look through my pictures from last season when everything looks so dull outside. I was driving into the farm just today and thought “Wow it looks so empty ..and small..and unproductive”. So I had to get my fix…my fix of reminiscing of warm days past and to come. So please come along with me:)

Mark & Lucca getting the beds ready early last spring

The field always looks so bare in the winter…

Our low tunnel frame ready to cover

Then little by little life begin to emerge:)

And not just in the field either…everywhere on the farm babies…

And then as if  by magic the farm springs in to high gear!

Beds pf zucchini & Beans

Old blue and the chicks

The field is taking on a glow of life:)

With summer comes summer fun on the farm!

My name is Peggy Lynn Marchetti. I am a wife, a mother of two beautiful, never boring children, and a farmer... that's right - a farmer... a female farmer to be exact. I live on a beautiful little third generation organic farm in middle Tennessee.
