A Bit of Sunshine!
I hope you have noticed the glorious plethora of flowers this year! The flowering trees have been bursting with color. So nice to see between the raindrops. We have been planting planting planting!! This time if year we put thousands of plants in the ground, some who take the rest of the season to fully grow. For example, yesterday we planted winter storage cabbage which we will not harvest until late October!
Sun for 4 days in a row!!! Of course it is raining as I write this and the rest of the week looks rainy, and CSA harvest will be in the rain, but I suppose all those plants we put in the ground yesterday will be happy to get settled in. At least it is a little warmer!
I have been farming for almost 19 years now and we have been eating seasonally/farm food for almost that entire time. It seems as though I should be used to it by now, but I will admit dinners still amaze me. Amaze me that everything on our plate was produced on this farm or from a friend. AND THE FOOD TASTES AMAZING. I hope you are embracing fresh local food too!
Ok this pic is not as beautiful, but it was sooo good!!
