It’s officially planting season in our neck of the woods. I don’t know about you, but that means our family’s schedule gets turned upside down, sometimes for weeks on end. If you’re a farm wife, busy season might look different depending on your location, operation, or your role. If you’re not in agriculture, there may be a different time of year that looks extra chaotic compared to others. In today’s episode, I’m going to share the things I’ve learned on how to navigate busy seasons, such as planting and harvest, as a farm wife.
Even when I know it’s coming and what to expect, it can still be a lot. To be honest, sometimes it’s downright HARD. Thankfully, over the past seven years of living on the farm, I’ve come to understand what I can do to set myself up for success. I hope there’s a nugget or two in this conversation that will help you and your family on your own journey!
My top tips for how to navigate busy seasons as a farm wife:
- You don’t have to sit at home… go out and DO!
- Find a community that understands what you’re going through
- YOU get to decide what this looks like; let go of the expectations of others
- It’s okay to adjust your expectations in this season
- Keep a positive mindset
- Remembering that this too shall pass!
