Describe your farming experience

I have an eclectic farming education that includes self-study, family mentorship, some college classes, and working in various farm related roles. When people ask this I like to tell them that at 6 years old I decided I wanted to sell flowers - so I got 20$ from doing chores and picked out my seeds in the seed catalog (still obsessed with seed catalogs!) I planted them, watered them, and when it was time made them into pretty bouquets to sell at the corner by the library, and I sold every one.
I also continue to enjoy learning more every day, which I believe is what farming really takes to do well. Every season alway new challenges and rewards.
