this is how i spent christmas eve day - tilling soil in a field to prepare it for planting peas. super, super, super fun! it's very warm in davis, sunny, and being on the farm is such a joy. five years ago i had had the bilateral mastectomy a month earlier and was preparing for chemo in january. i could never have dreamed that five years later i'd be back in davis, working on a farm, driving a tractor, and loving life more than ever. i am so very grateful.
