So this Monday was a little less mundane than others. It was the Monday that we had to get back into the compost spirit, but more importantly, or perhaps equally importantly (because after all what is more important than healthy soil??), our congress woman Chellie Pingree came by the farm for a visit and lunch at the Cafe. She seemed a very down to earth person and as I understand she was (or maybe still is) an organic gardener. Her staff were very pleasant and everyone seemed excited about organic farming and hoop houses, and agriculture until those wily little devils came out and stole everyone's attention. . .yes, the sheep. Apparently there is some draw to fuzzy little mammals that no one can resist. Now I don't know if we should eat them or keep them?
Honestly though it was a great time. We talked a little bit about the program and what we are hoping to accomplish here at Pearson's Town and Saint Joe's. Perhaps once health care is a topic of the past, we can get back on the agriculture band wagon. . . or maybe we can focus on agriculture as the foundation of health care. . .
