Perhaps some blossoms will tempt you toward an optimistic future.
Farmers are notorious list builders. The list of "To Dos" grows as the season progresses; the checks can't keep up with the additions to a list. For now, an April list feels manageable and a farmer can assume (for once in said chosen occupation) that he or she has the upper hand. Of course, the warming sun conspires with growing things and very soon, farmers are chasing after a highly self motivated and transformational beast.
Soon, a list is futile and a vain attempt at control.
