I love this Google earth view of my farm. Below is a very (very!) vague and non-exact drawing of the boundaries. It’s totally not drawn quite right, and is somewhat skewed from the perspective, but it will give you the idea of how this 100 acres lies, which is generally within the ridges all around. The cleared area in the foreground is the far upper reach of the cattle farm that is on the other side of my farm.
This “airplane” view reminds me that while down here on the ground, I feel as if there is a lot of flat land around me, this farm is truly nestled in the wild and wonderful hills.
A year ago on the eve of Thanksgiving, I posted Landing on My Feet. It was an exciting, scary time for me, and it has been a wild and wonderful year. I appreciate so much all the support and encouragement over this past year as I’ve found my way in this big change. At this time, as I still feel a bit stunned that it has actually been a year, one of the things I am thankful for is you.
Thank you for being here, and here is to Year Two at Sassafras Farm!
