    1. Do you think so, Seamus? I think it is pretty fun, and mighty good exercise too, and brilliant technology for a small operation like mime. I don’t know how many takers I’d get though, in the land of big combines and swathers:) Thanks for the comment, though, it is good to hear from you.

  1. Jack,
    What kind of hay were you harvesting? Is it for your stock? Thanks for showing us the seasons. So many of us are out of sync to them. Our forefathers lived and moved by them. I think God intended it that way. Your kids look like they are enjoying it. Thanks for teaching them good work ethics they will make great adults.

    1. Hi David, I was cutting alfalfa for hay that I will feed to my sheep and goats this winter. I don’t grow enough to make it all the way through, but I am getting closer. Thankfully my provision is not limited to what I can produce on five acres. I appreciate your encouragement, David. I am grateful to be bound to the seasons, and to have the knowledge that I am bound to the seasons.

      1. Jack,
        This concept is newly enlightening to me as in my own life too many things are getting piled up that should be set apart to do in there own season. The spring bowls make sense. Wood works better without humidity and in the winter its sap is lowest, a good time to turn green bowls and let them dry ready for in the spring. I am going to try to let the wood rest till winter, Well, maybe if I can stand waiting!! LOL. Thanks.

      2. David, the waiting can be difficult. One of the hardest things for me is prioritizing between all of the different activities and disciplines I am engaged with around here. A sensitivity to the undercurrents of the seasons has been a helpful governing factor in what to put aside and what to take up. I expect that you guys have a lot of humidity there is Georgia. Thanks for the comments.

  2. I’m sharing these with my 7yo son. He came to me the other day and said, “Daddy, I figured out what I want to do in life. I want to grow things and sell them to people.”

    1. I am glad to give you something worthy to share with your boy. Sounds like he has a good plan.

  3. Amazing collection of photos! It’s incredible seeing your land transforming. I used to get an instant email update whenever you posted. Now, I’ve got to stop by and check. What happened to gmail?

    1. Thank you, Mikey. I am glad you can see the transformation from Oregon! I don’t know about the update. Perhaps I’ve been designated as spam.
