Farming is so central to the dominant American story – the intrepid homesteader conquering the Great Plains and sewing and harvesting those majestic waves of amber grain. People living in overpriced cities nowadays like to dream about “getting back to the land,” living an idealized version of Little House on the Prairie, but what is it actually like to farm for a living? In the first episode of Season 2, I’m talking with Ashley Wilson, co-founder of Frisky Girl Farms in North Bend, Washington about the bane of her existence – squash rash. I find out that I’m not the only one who’s had difficulty with those beautiful divas known as dahlias, and we discuss whether tractors are as awesome as they seem (they are!).
