The second article appeared in the Spring 2011 edition of Farming Magazine, called "Spring Plowing in New England". It is an article about the annual "April Fool's Plow Event" held locally here in Connecticut, where many of us horse farmers help a gentleman plow his two acre garden with horses and oxen. The garden yields an abundance of food that he then offers to the needy in his community. You can learn more about this charming magazine, with a large following of Amish and Menonite readers, at www.farmingmagazine.net.
