order & chaos


So I’d say our farm, like most, is a bit chaotic. Not in a stressful, busy kind of way, but in a we-have-a-lot-of-stuff kind of way. I think it’s pretty natural for farming spaces to become ‘collection’ spaces, but like anywhere, collection spaces can quickly become messy spaces. That’s why one of our farm goals is to sort, purge and organize (something this blogger loves).

We’ve been chipping away at tackling parts of the farm storage system that have been forgotten, discovering valuable tools and useful odds and ends in the process. I took a stab at tidying and reorganizing part of our barn last weekend (photo above) and while thinking about other areas to tackle, came to realize that we’ve actually made a pretty good dent with this stuff already. Bit by bit, on all fronts, this lovely little farm is becoming even lovlier. It’s almost been a year since we started and our progress is showing – yay!

So, to all the other neat-freaks out there like me, here’s to many more organizing parties & experiments in creative recycling!
