cropthornefarm#tbt to summer CSA days with a wee and unimpressed #megaboss
Packing CSA with a walking toddler this year will be interesting 😬
- jasonsalvoIt's a whole different ball game. We struggled through two or three years trying to work and do child care simultaneously. Then we got smart and hired a nanny. We realized, despite the cost, no one on your farm can replace you. So the expense was worth it. 😬
- whistlingtrainfarmYes to nanny. That's how I survived the first few years too. Either hire a farm manager/marketer or a nanny.
- shesaproviderIn the same boat here. I think we're going for half day nanny.
- robinettefarmsNanny is amazing and totally worth it! We've got three kiddos, 7 and twin 4 year olds and we could still use one but we are hoping this year they will be more "independent"! Ha! Wishful thinking I'm sure.
- chefderekkgrayWhen does your csa start up would love to support you guys.
- daffodilhillgrowersWe survived although she took bites out of almost everything she touched as a toddler. Now as a 5 yr old shes "bored" all the time we are doing a nature center camp which is half day most of the summer. It is an expense but the two of us barely survived last summer with the crabbiness because of hot boredom.
- cropthornefarm@jasonsalvo @robinettefarms @whistlingtrainfarm @daffodilhillgrowers @shesaprovider thanks for all the advice. The last year has been pretty frustrating and know that if kiddies and farming is my reality the next number of years, I need to make it as easy as possible! I was thinking a nanny next year but y'all have almost convinced me to start looking for this summer! I just try to think how sweet it will be the first time they drive the market truck in to the farmers market all by themselves!
- cropthornefarm@chefderekkgray right on! we start early June and go til late October.
- whistlingtrainfarmMy first born gets her learning permit this summer... I'll let you know. 😉
