That’s right folks, this post is number 2001. I never dreamed, 3 years ago that I’d be writing about such an event. But it is your overwhelming support and interest that has kept me going.
I run the site by myself. I had a helper for a while, but she split town, so now it’s all me again. Beginning Farmers was begun as a service, and it still is. I have a couple of ads now, as I’m sure some of you have noticed, but those simply help to pay for hosting costs and my maintenance guru Chris Decker who is a farmer advocate and web doctor.
It’s been a long haul, still is. Posting every day isn’t easy for a graduate student. And I’ve never made a dime off the site. But it’s those of you who write to me, call me, comment and participate on the Facebook Page who make it worth it.
Thanks to everyone who has helped to make Beginning Farmers such a success. Thanks for tuning in, and thanks for all the love…
If there is anything you feel is missing, if you have any ideas, want to talk about the content or stories, or want to share your own, I love to get comments and e-mails, and I love guest posts even more. So please, send me either through the comments section of the site or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In honor of this momentous occasion, I’d like to share some of my art with you. This one is a close up picture of a squash. My lovely wife Emily named it: The Meeting of the Frogs for reasons you may be able to discern if you study it closely enough (and use your imagination a little bit).
Thanks again for all your support!
