Happy Valentine's Day everyone. This is my Valentine from Ralph from several years ago--a 50-foot red heart in the middle of the pasture. There hasn't been much snow on the ground this year and if there was, now there are animals in that particular field who would have to investigate. I don't particularly relish the thought of having my heart trampled. But this was and oldie & goody so I thought I'd share what farmers do for their loved ones on Valentine's Day instead of sending chemically polluted roses grown in South America and unsustainably flown to North America or giving diamonds that have been dug from earth-destroying pits using child slaves where the profits continue to fund military dictatorships and political unrest. Let's not even consider the environmental impact of precious metal production. So, what does a guy get a gal who doesn't wear jewelry, perfume or like cut flowers? A card and chocolate, will do just fine, thank you.
