You see, my brother has been living in MD since he graduated in 2011. Good grief I can't believe it's been that long. Anyways, he's a farmer (is that even the right term nowadays?) on an organic, sustainable farm. I was long overdue to visit and see his side of the world.

I drove up Friday afternoon and was able to stay with Bubba's girlfriend, Marie. I was greeted with wine and a chick flick, exactly what I wanted. (P.S. watching P.S. I Love You while PMS-ing is a terrrrrible idea.)
Saturday morning we all threw on work clothes and headed to Marie's farm. She's a farmer too and her and Bubba used to work on the same farm, Jay's farm. It was cool to see a glimpse of their daily lives. Where they spend their days and what they do. I sit behind a computer all day so farming is way out of the norm for me.
For several hours we helped her with some of her work. Bubba did some watering and I helped with transplanting baby plants. What Marie and I were doing was pretty relaxing, therapeutic even. It helped that the farm dogs LOVED me. :) I loved them back because it was the right thing to do.
