If you peek into the card aisle of any store this weekend you’re likely to see a farmer or two trying to find the right Valentine’s Day card for their spouse. They’ll read 10 cards, and put each one back because the perfect card for those in agriculture doesn’t exist. They’re either too sappy or too animated. And none get to the heart of the matter.
Those in agriculture usually show their love and appreciation in different ways and throughout the year, not necessarily on February 14, and usually not with a $5.00 greeting card someone else wrote.
It may be shown through a favorite dessert served on a tailgate in October or a ditch-pulled wildflower bouquet on the counter in July or even a weekend away once the crop is finally in the ground in May.
It matters not how you show your appreciation for your Valentine, just as long as you do.
