I understand why Cain's face fell. Farming is hard work. Or it would be if I stuck at it for more than a few hours. Fortunately, I only had to play at being a farmer. Here are a few pictures I took when I was supposed to be weeding and picking and otherwise actually working. If you want to get a bit of dirt under your fingernails and feel connected to the earth, your food, and all that grows under the sun, then visit Bare Bottom Farms.

|Cole Slaw, Big Mama, and Pig. Recycling unsold vegetables into pork.|
|It's all work on the farm until someone falls into the river.|
