This Weekend I was A Luddite

All Praise to Luddites! This weekend my family and I drove 3 hours into Michigan, past PawPaw and into Alleghan and stopped at Fat Blossom farm. There our friends Jake and Liz own a small organic farm. Jacob and Liz actually have 47 acres of land of which only 2 acres is farmed. We are the first family of the share holders for Fat Blossom, as well as being good friend's of Jacob's mother so we were there to work. I use the term loosely because we also brought with us our 3 kids, all of whom are under the age of 6 and because due to scheduling conflicts we arrived at 5pm on Saturday night.

But we woke up with the sun on Sunday after an insanely torrential downpour which resulted in a near midnight dash from our tent in lightening to the house where we slept on the floor.
