I was going to name this post "Disaster!" but i changed my mind. Patience is more appropriate since it is what organic farming is teaching me.

Yesterday was my first visit in our farm this year and its been almost a month since my last visit. I already expected the farm to be a bit out of order but what I saw still took me by surprise. Only a few plots were planted by salad greens and the rest were empty and drying up.

I never spoke a single word, instead I took the spade and started to dig in. There were so many things to do, I don't know where to start.

Well, I think that’s what you get by being an absentee landlord. And I also learned that organic farming teaches you not only the kind of patience you need for slow growing plants, but also patience for things you cannot control or change...
