Purchased hay costs went up again this last week

right on the heels of finally figuring out the land rental situation. For those who don’t remember, we normally put up our own hay but that didn’t happen in 2013 for a variety of reasons, amongst which was what I’ll politely call a breakdown in communication between DH and myself. We had a few nice days of not arguing about farm stuff, but then that hay price boost created another round of bickering. Very discouraged right now that DH and I will ever be on the same page in terms of how to run the farm and how to manage costs. So I’m back to looking for off-farm work again, for the fourth time in two years. Suffice to say I don’t have much good to say about the situation at the moment. But I did just finish a job application for a gardening writer. I’d appreciate some good luck sent our way that I get that job, or something like it.
