A Typical Day
Morning comes early to Baldwin Farm. When the sun peeks over the horizon and dew glistens on the barn roof, Margery is already in morning devotions. Soon Pedro will arrive for country breakfast and go over the day’s to-do list. A hands-on person, Margery is always in the middle of it all, so off they go to morning chores.
Across the Baldwin farmyard, the dogs come running to greet them. The familiar sight of the workers’ seasonal hats bobbing in and out among the various farm scenes is soothing. It’s a happy day for Margery when she is on the farm making sure everything runs smoothly. Her motto is, “bloom where you are planted.”
As busy as she is, Margery often stops to spend time with the kids or introduce new friends to the goats. She responds instinctively to gentle moments like reaching up to scratch the belly of her cat sunning overhead on the swing rail. Many animals roam around under foot, so farm work often turns into play.
Farmers are familiar with hectic schedules. They live with the pressure of getting it all done… on time … before rain … before frost … before spring buds open … before vegetables are overripe … before straw goes to seed … before weeds sprout … and on and on. Margery often would forget to eat, if not for Maria around to nudge her. But at the beginning of each season, it all comes together. Everyone gathers round with willing hands to help put out “Follow the Signs,” prepare for Farmer’s Markets, make wreaths and swags, restock jams, honey and salsas and greet folks.
Pedro’s incredible energy allows him to carry much of the farm work-load. His skill guarantees that jobs are done well and on time. He is always deep into new plans for next year even while attending to this year’s duties. It’s hard, tiring work with a million things to do. But each day brings an excitement that something new and wonderful is about to happen. It’s at once difficult and rewarding.
