Farming Has To Do With Caring

P1020042

This morning I spent two hours taking apart, cleaning, oiling, and reassembling a sewing machine. A part of our farm we use this one to fabricate and repair items for farm use more than personal use.  After completing a three day project it needed to be stripped and maintained.  I found one part that needed to be replaced.  Performing routines, whether it is on a simple tool or the garden or a hay field or with animals, is a joy to us, tying us to what it means to care.
