This is the scene I have out my kitchen window. It may not look like much to you, but to me it means food on my table! The rich deep earth just yearning for a chance to shine by becoming a nursery to the seeds that will be planted, harvested and than shared with the world. How can that not make me be proud to be a farmer's wife?
Every year, we are giddy with anticipation of what this land, that we call home, has in store for us. Will it have the ability to produce a good crop? Will the rains come in a timely fashion? Will the temperature be just right? Farmers play a chance of risk every time they set out to start a new year and we are ready for the challenge.
The seed is ready too! If I could hear them speaking, I think they are saying..."pick me...me first!"
As farmers start this 2014 crop year, I pray that all will be safe and that their hard work will be rewarded with a good year!
Happy Earth Day!
