Dear Farm Journal,
Although my legs are tired and my hamstrings feel tight enough to snap, I spend a good part of the day planting and weeding. I know that once I get a little further into the season, my body will take on a more grisly form and I won’t even feel the day’s labor. This is just springtime initiation, and I am happy to be planting outside after winter’s extension into spring. Just last week our gardens were covered in snow and ice and now the soil is soft and warm, ready to receive these cute little lettuce transplants.
