    Forrest! Just watched the movie, DIRT!, last night – and have been thinking about soils a lot. A winemaker in the film likes to taste his soils. Have you tried that?

    Forrest,
    I think you must not forget the “personality” of the farmer working the land….raising the animals…and appreciating being blessed with the determination for being a good farmer. The farmer who does not really want to be a farmer grumbles his way through his or her work day, wishing they had chosen another profession , and making life “taste” bad, affecting the way the job does or doesn’t get done. The farmer who wants to be close to the land and connects to it, adds the right ingredients to every project he undertakes,no matter how grueling it may be. The grumpy, grumbling, “I don’t want to be here” farmer, makes the cows grumpy too. From the rows of spinach in the vegetable garden to the juicy organically grown double-bacon cheeseburger (with fresh garden onions, of course), the farmer who loves what he does can make everything taste good!!

    So, my question is, “Are there T-shirts available?”..or are you going to hold a Smith Meadows T-shirt slogan contest and award a weekend experience at the farm as the prize for the winning slogan. Maybe you already did this, and I missed it??

    I am not at all surprised that a 4Her excels at a witty top ten list 😉
