We just got a new sign for the farm. I put it right next to the road so folks can see it as they drive by. I also put the USDA logo on it to help people realize that we are certified organic and that we have a market at the farm on Wednesday nights. There are sign regulations in our township so our largest signs are on our property behind the road easement the county requires. These new signs are small and not permanent so they are OK for us to use and they don’t block your view as you leave the farm driveway.
About 30 minutes after installing the sign up front, I started to see signs of a thunderstorm moving quickly towards us: dark clouds rolling in, strong winds, a significant temperature drop, and the smell of rain. I stood and watched it move towards us, the clouds swirling around on both sides as the rain started to pummel the ground.
After 15 minutes it blew over and left brilliant sunshine.
It all made me think about signs and how they are interpreted by our senses.
One thing I want to do more of is listen to the signs my own body is giving me and learn to interpret them. Some I have mastered. Such as, if I am cranky, I probably haven’t eaten in a while (my family definitely knows this). If I have halos around my eyes, or feel light headed, I need water. These have become obvious to me. I want to become more in tune and more accepting to take action when my body starts showing me signs. The “EFT Manual”, by Dawson Church, is intriguing. Maybe part of my heel pain is associated with my lifestyle or stress level. I know the amount of time on my feet is a definite cause, but what if there are other signs of things happening in my life that I haven’t associated as possibly contributing to my heel pain?

Did You Know that our plants can give us signs? If a tomato or pepper has a black or tan spot on the bottom, called blossom end rot, it means the plant is not getting enough calcium. Most soils have enough calcium. It is typically caused by fluctuations in water or not enough water. Without the right amount water, the plants cannot pull the calcium they need from the soil.
