You Know You’ve Become an Italian Farmer When…

Your cute rubber boots that you bought for the rainy season are permanently stationed by the front door

You have names and nicknames for all your sheep and can identify which one is crying from three fields away

You count your sheep every day

You invite friends over so you can show off your new lambs

The chickens don’t have names because well they allimage look the same but you talk to them like they’re your girlfriends and they actually talk back

Your favourite perfume has been replaced with Vape bug spray

You have a separate wardrobe that is strictly for weeding, pruning, beekeeping, painting, sheering sheep and well basically anything that isn’t designer and ok to ruin imagewill do

You have lengthy comversations with the Park Ranger about how to preserve tomatoes

You find yourself racing past the shopping mall to get to Leroy Merlin before closing time because there was a sale on dirt!

You get excited about new floral patterns on garden gloves

You now totally get why socks with sandals makes sense!
