Imagine a painter with a blank canvas, a teacher with a classroom of new students or a builder with a blueprint. Think of the potential or even the possible pitfalls. It can be overwhelming at first, but once you start, there's a momentum.
I'm the first-time farmer with five virgin, unlplowed acres and an empty barn. But a month later with momentum in place, it's looking like this:
100 pounds of seed potato, planted
1,600 onions, planted
1 new tractor, purchased, delivered, working
3 goats, delivered
35 yards of compost, spreaded
