The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Farm time change

Weeding with goats

This is the time of year when our farm undergoes its own sort of time change. Afternoons are already getting too hot to make outdoor work fun. So we swap our inside and outside tasks, taking to the garden before lunch and enjoying interior cool during the sweltering afternoons. I may even have to hook up the sprinklers shortly if this hot spell continues!
