Open love letter to a dirt farmer

The Dirt Farmer doesn't read my blog which gives me an enormous amount of latitude to share the inner sanctum of my love for him...or pictures of him in odd farm like poses.

As I looked out over the small sea of people at Pie Day I could hear 'Yummm" as they tasted my pie and when more than one person at a time would "Yum", it resonated in some kind of spiritual farm orchestra with the bees humming in the nearby gardens.

My Dirt Farmer was busy rushing about as I was on Pie Day and we really never came together because our roles were to host...and guide small fingers holding carrots. As I caught glimpses of him through out the day, standing next to the many structures he has built for our farm, including the Donkey Hug area and many outside "rooms', I'd get one of those "Yum-Bee-Buzz" resonances in my heart.

When the guests had all left, someone caught this picture of two middle aged dirt farmers wearing carefully selected hats sitting exactly where they belong.

We were very impressed that Martin remembered us. At first we weren't sure of his role in the pie day, if he was to be petted and hugged and fed carrots to, or if he was one of the staff. From the blog we know of the important role of pie in your relationship, and so the day was also a fitting celebration of you two. What a great thing you have going on out there. Maybe a romance novel is in your (or Pino's?) future literary repertoire...or a "how to" book- "Using Pie to Find the Man of Your Dreams in 3 Easy Steps."

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
