Dear Farm Journal,
So today we head out for Bay De Noc, Michigan with our friend, Ben, to fish for smallmouth bass, and I feel a bit ill prepared. After the PBB show last night, my packing job is haphazard, at best. Nonetheless, we throw all of our gear in the back of the car and take off, trusting our family with the supervision of the farm. We are truly fortunate to have family who are willing to step in while we get away. They are charged with covering and uncovering the crops, taking care of our pets, one of which was recently neutered, and keeping a fire going in the farmhouse, no small task, so I am very thankful. So, away we go, time to put some fish in the freezer for winter to go along with all those veggies I have been putting up.
