We have an old farm rake that has been a decorative feature on our property for years, and I always thought it’d make a handy holder for holiday lights. There is a part of me that secretly desires to be a toiler of the soil while driving my horse with long reins. However, I have never been able to get anything to grow in a little garden in this hard, clay ground, let alone a huge field. I love the thought, though, of my little mare, a Holsteiner-cross who’s bred to drive, and myself, wearing a wide-brimmed straw hat, working the field together. But, for now, I better stick to container gardening.
