Once or twice in the last week we have felt that crisp bite of fall air in the early morning. I'm sure summer will not give up without a fight, she never does down here. But, the season change is quickly approaching. What is my favorite season you ask? Well, that's a tough one. On the farm each season brings its unique blessings and challenges. I'm thankful to live in an area where we have distinct seasons. Summers are hot, winters can be pretty cold, and spring and fall are usually to short. As someone that works out in the elements, but also enjoys the cycle of nature, my favorite season is the next one.
In Winter I'm ready for the farm to awaken in the spring.
Spring is great to awaken the farm, but after the cold of winter and cool of spring, the long growing season and warm summer sun is surely welcome.
Summer days are long, and hot. By early September we are ready for that cool crisp morning air of Fall.
Fall is fabulous, we like to share it with the public through farm tours, corn maze, and hay rides. After the farm tours and the fall harvest season we are ready for a rest. Winter provides us an opportunity to slow down and recharge.
Then the cycle repeats. See, there is always something to look forward to.
