This is where I write about trying to balance it all - motherhood, working full time and feeding my family the cheapest, healthiest and most local food I can find. Working full time does not mean that you need to eat processed, unheathly food and be stressed out. It's all about the balance.
Als ich wisse das Morgen der Erde enden wuerde, immernoch wurd ich mein Apfelbaum pflanzen.
Even if I knew the world would perish tomorrow, I would still plant my apple tree. - Martin Luther
"Factory work's easier on the back, and I don't mind it, understand, but a man becomes what he does. Got to watch that. That's why I keep at farmin' although the crops haven't ever throve. It's the doin' that's important." Madison Wheeler in Blue Highways by William Least Heat Moon

What Makes March Interesting...
Two days ago, in PA
The kids spent the day with their Pap collecting sugar water, having mud fights and drinking lots of sweet halfway done syrup. It was warm, sunny, lovely and very, very muddy.
Auntie H came up to check out the progress in the Sugar House.
Today in VA
Ten inches in some places, grey skies, below freezing - not a sign of spring in sight.
Except this - a wasp in the kitchen.
Good thing Nature practices fecundity. It's a rough world out there.
