dear ms b-farmher


ms b
there is a tv channel that we get on our dish tv

it is one of the channels that i upgraded to a higher level
just to get it

we watch two shows
california bountiful
texas country reporter

now the california bountiful is all about
agriculture in california
gardening cooking raising animals making cheeses
farmers markets lots of agriculture cooking etc
restaurants many we have gone to on our visits
to california

ms b two weeks ago
on the tail end of a dvred california bountiful
there was a new tv show called
why did they misspell it like that

i found a show and watched it
now its on my regular dvr shows

it is a show about women in agriculture

there is something about a young girl young student
who is involved in agriculture in some way
commonly in the form of ffa in the schools
even in urban schools they have these programs

having to be responsible for the care of an animal
a garden
promoting it like they do with
animal shows and with farmer markets to sell the produce
like some do donate the veggies to a needy group

there is this character building that occurs
that cant seem to be gained being a cheerleader
being an athlete being in the band etc

maybe its the tie to the land
well its sort of i think incorporated somehow into our

i have lots of nephews and nieces now great ones
that have been involved in the ag programs in schools
in some form of agriculture at home

its well its made them a better person
they appreciate i think things more

so i recently watched a farmher program
which is about females who are involved in agriculture
in some way

this last episode a young adult a college ag graduate
and her husband raise cattle to sell as breed stock
raise grains
raise their own hay for feed
she does a blog about her experiences
but also blogs about fashion stuff that seems to be
clicking with rural women who are in ag
some not in ag

so i guess ms b
you already have a duck and a rabbit
granted they well they are real to you
dont read this
they are just stuffed animals

i would like to see you go dig in the dirt
scratch around
plant something
let it grow
eat it
do it all over again

so ms b
hoping to rub some ag exposure into your life
here is your
christmas present

go for it
