This week we will have:
lettuce, spinach, kale, chard, broccoli, sugar snap peas, radish, turnips, scallions, kohlrabi, dill, cilantro, parsley, basil, beet greens, broccoli leaves.
On the farm:
I’ve been learning the difference between water resistant and water proof: water resistant means you get wet from the outside in. Water proof means you get wet from the inside out. I’m not sure which I like better.
I spent Sunday once again engaging in my favorite past time and for the past week there have been streams flowing through the fields. In the one pictured below I took out a fishing rod and cast it and actually caught a fish right in the potato field!
Kevin has also been bringing his waterwings to the farm. I’d never seen someone harvesting peas in waterwings until Kevin this week. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture to prove it. He was doing a slip and slide when I took this and didn’t end up in the picture.
Also, we’re without Devin now because he had a wrist injury. So if any one likes picking peas and wants to come out, by next week there will hopefully be lots of them!
That’s it for this week. Just a reminder we’ll be at the market tommorrow. Happy Canada day!
