There’s a lot of mythology out there about how farmers live. Admitting as we must that we are atypical farmers, and acknowledging as we all should that there may not even be such a thing as a “typical” farmer, we thought it might be helpful anyway to talk through the nearest we can settle on as a “typical” day for us.
I’m up early, but usually not to work outside. We start our day slowly, and Amanda tends to pour on the energy as the day unfolds. And of course it is a most atypical day when I miss my midday nap!
