With the season winding down, Landon and I are turning our attention to some of the items on our comically long “Winter List”. There’s a lot of work to do around here in the off-season, from ordering seeds to repairing the tractors to building a permanent deer fence. It’s enough work to keep Landon busy full-time for the next few months and makes for a very tedious answer to the question “What do farmers do over the winter?”.
But the winter also gives us time to visit with family near and far, sleep in (when Frankie allows it), and indulge in our hobbies. For me, that means devoting more time to my online certificate in graphic design and refining my farm-inspired Charley Harper tribute. For Landon, that means more time cooking, tinkering with random household electronics, and reading Irish detective procedurals. It’s a time of rejuvenation that makes the rest of the year possible, and we’re just about ready to dive in.
