#1 reason right here why there's nothing better than a fall morning in the north.
I'm going to be honest: I couldn't be happier to see summer go.
Hear me out: it's not that I don't have the same excitement as everyone else when snow gives way to rain and greenery and finally the warm summer sun, it's just that-since adopting a farming lifestyle-I get over that more quickly.
Summer means vacation for many people, but for farmers it's our most stressful season. For us it means juggling projects, weekend markets, and deliveries on top of our already full workload. The sun and heat mean beach trips for some, but for farmers it means we're baking in it as we do chores, build chicken tractors, and mend fences. And, lately, summer for us has meant drought. While I realize our droughts could be much worse, after watching our pastures brown and feeding hay for much of two consecutive summers, fall-and its cozy nights, misty mornings, spectacular colors, and rain (!)-is more than welcome
