A Letter to Mother Nature

IMG_1167

Dear Mother Nature,

I am a farmer.  There’s not a whole lot of us left, you know, especially women farmers.  This is why I am writing you.

For god’s sake, Woman, can you help a farm girl out?!

It feels like April here, so wet and cold.  As soon as I transplanted the cold crops you laughed and sent a pile of hail.  Seriously, Ma, farmers have to grow produce and homesteaders have to grow food to eat!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am a great admirer of your work though.

Love,

Katie

Apparently ducks love hail.  Gives new meaning to "Happy as a Duck on Water!"

      It’s like Mother Nature went crazy with the hole puncher out there. It will recover, I imagine!
