Old Things are New Again
How far can something be stretched until it’s no longer physically viable? Making broken and old things new again seems to be a reoccurring theme in my life. Old trucks getting new parts, broken hoses getting replaced by new hoses, ripped greenhouse plastic getting patched with new materials, switching dull knives out for sharp knives, the list goes on. Today, I wear new boots. This is my third pair in my third season here at the farm. Today, I also wear patched pants from an old shirt given to me from a once new friend. It’s always a fun challenge to mend a broken item. New life is also such a fun thing to witness. All around us, birds are being born, beehives are multiplying, seedlings are becoming bigger and bigger every day. As the season continues, I look forward to seeing the life cycle of all things continue.
