lettuce, spinach, chard, kale, arugula, cucumbers, zucchini, carrots, beets, beans, broccoli, radish, turnip, dill, parsley, basil, scallions, peppers
On the Farm this week:
We’ve got spinach back! Spinach was one of the veggies we lost early on in summer in what the scientists had called a lot of rain. But the new plantings are ready now and so hopefully all the spinach fans will be happy. Yes, I know – we’ve also got weeds.
We’ve got a new member at the farm! Picking spinach in this picture is Caitlin who worked 3 days last week between rodeos where she races horses. She’s already a faster spinach picker than me – she’s obviously cheating somehow.
We’ve also getting some casual help from Alex, picking cucumbers here in this picture. Alex is a black belt in Tae kwon do and as part of his training I make him pick without a shirt on or bug spray and with one hand tied behind his back and he’s not allowed to blink all day. He will soon be a great ninja.
That’s it for this week
Jonathan, Nicole, Caitlin and Alex
