One year ago today, I started this blog. Wow, I can't believe it's been a year already since I started this journey! Time sure has flown by and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I have learned a lot over the last year about blogging, who follows me, what to write about, and even our very own farm. I continue to learn as well from you guys out there and I do have to admit that I have loved every moment!

I have learned that my thoughts are most definitely not that only way of doing things. I need to always keep an open mind. It is important to give my perspective but to also think of how my words may come off to someone else. I have learned to always hear the other person out.
I have learned that things I think of as normal farming practices may be totally unknown to others. It has been eye opening for me to share the smallest happenings on our farm and to get comments from others on how I have educated them. It has taught me to not be afraid to share our story.
I have learned to not be afraid to try something new and fail. When I am researching new recipes or things to try for the blog, there have been some epic fails along the way. But hey, I'm learning at this too. I have learned to try something new and if it doesn't work to revamp and try again, or sometimes just to give up! But it has been fun to test myself as well and see what I'm capable of.
Over the past year I have shared with you the challenges, the struggles and the rewarding moments of our farm and life. You have been by our side as we received a zero allocation of water, when we planted new trees on the farm, during the beauty of bloom, when we harvested our crop and when we announced we were expecting our new little almond farmer.

Until Next Time,
