Over the past month or so, I’ve had a three-part blog series running on the HowlRound web site: What Farming is Teaching/Reminding Me about Playwriting and Theater. It sums up a lot of what I’ve learned from the past two years of farming.
This year, I’m taking a year off from farming–our fields were too far from home, so I need to find a site a lot closer to Brookline (which is a big challenge), and I need to devote some more time to writing and family. But I will definitely do more farming, somehow, somewhere, in my double-life as a writer/farmer.
I still need to find some time to finish up the crop reports on this blog. I hope they’re useful to new micro-farmers, but for me, they’re an important way to document what I’ve learned, so I don’t have to repeat the same lessons over again when I get back in the field.
