How can I describe a paradoxical day? Well, it has to do with weather and media. Today was my delimna on this situation. First of all it was Saturday, not that it matters to me as a farmer, but because it is my wife Martha's chance to maybe relax from her stressful job. Second, and a big drive for me was that there was cold front in town and cloud cover her that offered an opportunity for me to work on my hop yard with long sleeves on (protctetion against the abrasive irriating vines).
The trouble was that I did not get to work until 1 PM. I had an obligation to go over the Mountain Horticlulture Experimental Station in Flecture, NC. to visit their newly established hop yard.
