Scraping in for a word just as spring nears its end! But what a season – it feels as though a year has been crammed into three months.
From blue corn trials, to travel for what must be Australia’s best market gardening course, spring plantings, mulching our Trees For Mums trees, giving a series of talks at the Bridgetown Ag Show and creating a new office; it’s little wonder I haven’t blogged since September.
At a desk made locally from farm-milled marri wood, I’m delightfully distracted by two blue wrens nesting in the old grevillia outside. We’re enriched by so many happenings, not least the prospect of test-driving the 100% electric farm ute this week!
You’d forget this is a so-called quiet life in the country.
Joyce Wilkie, of Allsun Farm where we studied in September, said we could all do with learning how to stay zen on the inside, regardless of how “busy” we are on the outside.
A wise notion – and one Joyce said she’s still working on.
I’m with her. Onward! Or is it, inward? Both, I think…
