It’s been nearly a month since I’ve written anything so to those wondering yes I am still here. I’ve just been incredibly busy.
For starters it’s harvest season, and it’s been a race against time to pull out all of our root crops before winter falls and the ground freezes. Where I work we do a lot of storage crops so there can be a source of income in the winter months, for winter in Vermont is long. Included in our business is potatoes, parsnips, turnips, radishes, and most importantly carrots. This year the farm planted nearly 1.1 million carrot seeds, or about 6 miles of carrot beds. And I strapped a propane tank to my back and flame weeded every last inch. Currently we have about one and a half weeks left of peak workable season, and about three quarters of our root crops still to harvest. So yeah I’ve been real busy with that.
Other than that not much has happened with my life. Recently decided to try and learn the basics of Rust and it’s pretty neat I gotta say. I love how safe the language is, and also hate it because it means I have to actually program things well, which I’m not good at.
It’s also Desert Bus right now! The internet’s longest running charity stream, this year being the 15th in a row, is a great meeting of nerds for a good cause. Pretty much people play Penn and Teller’s Desert Bus game, where you drive a bus from Tuscon to Las Vegas in real time, and try to stave off boredom. It’s ridiculous, here’s the stream link
Don’t expect much of anything from me until the farm season is over, so until then hope all y’all’s lives go well.
