Harvesting and packing our CSA shares each week is so rewarding, as our hard work comes together in a delicious array of colors, flavors, and textures.
Last week John and Amir harvested beets on a rainy day...
...and Benner seeded the next succession of salad greens with our trusty Planet Junior seeder.
We often let cover crops like buckwheat, vetch, and clover go to flower to provide a good source of nectar and pollen for our honey bees all season long.
Our potatoes are in full bloom right now and looking amazing. We have swaths of white, yellow, purple, and red flowers for each different variety of potato we grow.
Our winter squash is also in bloom and buzzing with bees. Each one of the flowers that are pollinated grows into a squash, one more reason to keep honey bees on the farm.
Also noteworthy, Ben dressed as a giant broccoli and walked on stilts in the Fairlee 4th of July Parade with this fine group of stilt walking vegetable people! Fun times!
