Spring or Winter?

I feel like we can all agree that the air around us feels a little strange lately. Not only are we all trying to navigate our first global pandemic together (yet safely apart), but we’re also most likely wondering where our normal late-spring, early-summer weather has been hiding. I’ve packed away my winter clothes 3 different times now and had to pull them out yet again this morning for this week of oddly chilly weather we’re supposed to get. On the farm, we recently lost 3 rows of tomato plants in one of our fields from that late-season frost that visited our area Mother’s Day weekend. It was so sad to see all the hard work that went into those little plants die off. But that’s life - there are no promises! We replanted in all the areas that were affected and now you almost can’t even tell that there was any frost damage at all. All that to say, under normal circumstances I would really be shaking an angry fist in my mind at Mother Nature right now. Doesn’t she know that it should be warm and sunny? But instead, I’m trying to use this time as a little gift. Sometimes all it takes is an adjustment in perspective!
