Spring is a lovely time of year to be a farmer. Yes, the days are incredibly busy from sunup until sundown, and most of that time is spent hunched over the dirt in a back-breaking position. But on our farm, we're are never bitter in springtime (which is quite a contrast to the middle of August!). Right now, the unfolding of the summer seems bright and full of promise.
Spring is also a great time of year to start eating lighter and healthier meals to fuel our bodies for long days ahead. This blueberry pie smoothie is a perfect example of how my husband and I begin our day before we head out into the fields.
