The summer is here. There’s something right about this season, something true in its arrival. The solstice has always been a special time, a demarcation between the dark grey days of winter and the bright long nights of summer.

For me, on the farm, it’s the time of hay and silage, a time when the animals are out to grass, grazing in the evening sun.
