This week gave us a glimpse of the extremes of life. One day with sun on our skin and near 60 and the next moment plunging into -20 here on the farm.
-20 seems like no big deal in January but at the end of February, after a wonderfully soul exciting warm day, it’s a hard pill to swallow that we have to go outside to tend the animals on those mornings.
Things are a changing though. As I looked to tree line this week – I said to Nick, “Those trees look red” He looked out and agreed with me. The trees are preparing, the animals are preparing, the change is coming soon.
This week I saw a large majestic bald eagle fly low over the farm, maybe looking for a meal and the tracks of wild herbivores that would love swollen blossoms to eat and the greenery of spring. I can’t imagine what it would be like to be one of those wild animals – With the snow as my bed and the wind my companion – with the bark and trees as my meal or maybe a happenstance road kill. I imagine I would have deep wisdoms about nature that I do not have right now and possibly more hunger and death in my life.
I am grateful for the roof over my head, the warmth of the wood stove that also cooks my meals, freezers full of meat to cook when we hunger, and the stable and safe life of living in a home with my true loves – my family.
What interesting changes have you seen this week? What is important to you this week?
I share a recipe below I made this week for pulled lamb tacos with sourdough flatbread – this is a wonderful meal to prepare in the morning if you know you will have a busy day ahead and will need a warm nourishing meal approved by all. I recommend making the flatbread ahead of time and popping them in the freezer for when you need them.
We send you love on this last day in February.
With care your farmers,
Sarah Mahan & (Nick Jackson)
