We've begun watering.  This past Saturday was a tomato trellising day and plants in the garden are showing noticeable signs of wanting water.  The field is looking practically weed free, than you to the many work share and field crew hands.  This seems like it will make August a breeze for irrigating, harvesting, and going to market.  I feel so grateful - after every full day, no matter what kkind of mental and emotional effort it takes, I've felt so happy and enriched by farming.  How much effort does it take to appreciate beauty?
