What makes me happy? Bullfrogs, flowers buds on my fruit trees, the smell of tomato leaves, rhubarb popping up out of the ground, sunshine and so much more. Walks with my husband holding his hand. Conversations with my sons. Interactions with friends and family. All the wonderful and joyful people that work at the farm and the others that support what we are doing. And time alone to relax.
Part of the A3 Program this year is to focus on my happiness. I outlined my ideas of things to do each month in January and here is my progress report.
I have now defined to myself that my journey with A3 is about me as my own masterpiece. The benefit is that it will help my skills and abilities as a business owner and farmer too.

Did you know that rhubarb leaves are considered poisonous but the stems are tart and delicious? Rhubarb is one of my favorites for fruit pies and rhubarb sauce. It is also a perennial that emerges early in the spring. It can be harvested in May and June.
