"call in sorrow your friend, ask her where has she been"

Field of Dreams

Last week the Soil Stewards had our very first Farm Field Day. It was a smashing success. More people showed up than I had expected, and everyone seemed to enjoy being at the farm. It felt good to think that all of our hard work is paying off, and that people are interested in what we are doing. More and more people are seeing the need to be connected to their food and to be involved in their community and local economy. The Soil Stewards hope to make this an annual event. There is so much more work to do at the farm. This is really just the beginning, but it's the start of something great. I'm excited to be part of this growing movement.

and now, just because it's in my head:
"be disappointed and glum
beat yourself like a drum
yell out, 'who stole my silent night?!'"

Congrats on the successful event-very cool~
speaking of being more intersted in ythe food you eat I'm reading Omnivores dilema right now and loving it- Have you read it? Micheal Pollan has another called The Botany of Desire which I'm totally excited to get a hold of- Have you read that either?
any suggestions on good books like these?
