Buried deep in winter, it’s startling to look back at photographs taken in the summer. Deep, green grass feeds cows and calves, and everyone is in short sleeves.
Winter is a good time for reflecting on the past year and planning for the new year. For me, 2018 was the first time in three years I’d experienced all four seasons. I started a chicken enterprise, continued to adjust to driving on the right side of the road, and moved to a new house.
These events and other thoughts have been chronicled in some way on The Kiwi Hoosier. so to reflect on 2018, I present the top 10 blog posts from this year:
- Crowded in Corridors of Cornfields: Reverse Culture Shock
- An Unexpected Snowy Adventure
- Comic Relief in the Greatest Story Ever Told
- More than Just a Budweiser Horse: A View from the National Clydesdale Sale
- A Tribute to My Great-uncle
- Thoughts on Letters to a Young Farmer: Addressing Common Assumptions About Agriculture and Farming
- Slow, Slow, Quick, Quick, Slow
- “If We Want to Save the Land, We Must Save the People”: Wendell Berry and Uplifting Rural Communities
- Feeding, Moving Heifers, and a Goldfish: Photos and a Video
Thank you for reading this year. I hope you have enjoyed the journey of 2018 and that you’ll continue to visit The Kiwi Hoosier throughout the next year.
Best wishes for 2019!
