Their weekly newsletter has, naturally, news from the farm, recipes, and this time a reflection on farmer's block, if such possibly could exist. Inspired, so to speak, by writer's block, which Casey, who writes this edition, clearly does not suffer from:
A Word from the Field:
It may be the three hours of sleep, but I believe I am suffering from a common case of writers block. This is not to be confused with "farmer's block." "Farmer's block" we definitely do NOT have.
There is so much beautiful produce coming out of the fields. What would farmer's block look like? Well, maybe it looks like our husk cherries. We invested so much energy in them, and never got to the chapter when we get to harvest them.
Or maybe it looks like our carrots: we think they are going to germinate like a good idea, then they vanish like a thought you didn't get out in time.
Maybe, just maybe, it looks like a pond full of water without the ability to get it to all the fields. Ok, so we might have these mild cases of farmers block, but without them, wouldn't we be bored on our perfect little farm? Where's the challenge? The hardship? The angst? The sleep? All those successes (greens, ginger, potatoes, leeks, bok choi) wouldn't feel so special. So, I hereby say "cheers!" to farmers block, and shoo the writers block away!
