The phrase “Spring Forward, Fall Back” has always had ambiguous meaning to me.  While I understand we move the clock one hour forward in the spring and one hour back in the fall, we also lose an hour in the spring (backward) and gain an hour in the fall (forward).

Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday, March 9.  I’ve never been a fan, even though this will be the ninth year Indiana has recognized DST in our most recent history.  It’s never made sense to me with Indiana being assigned to the Eastern Time Zone while being located well within the boundaries of the Central Time Zone.  As a morning person, losing that hour of daylight in the morning is depressing.  I also need the darkness as a sign to tell me it’s time to stop working.  With that extra hour of daylight in the evening, I only tend to work longer through the day.  We’ll all make it through though.  We have to.  So spend your extra hour Saturday morning visiting the farmers’ market and your extra hour Sunday evening enjoying your family and looking forward to spring.

We will be at the Farm to Fork Market at Normandy Farms on Saturday, March 8.  We have pastured pork and pastured chicken and will be bringing Paleo Almond Delight Power Bars, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars and Cinnamon Nut Granola from Betsy’s Kitchen.  We’ll also have eggs again, at least a few dozen.  The chickens are picking up the pace.

As always, we also sell all of our grass-fed meats at the farm.
