Totally (farm) Tuesday.
On Tuesdays we don’t harvest or sell any vegetables. This leaves the day open for farm work. It is a day I welcome. Now with the census, taxes and our CSA start-up paperwork off my plate, I can delve into what needs attention in the field.
Today was broad forking, rescue-weeding shallots, planting zinnias and calendula and moving black plastic over areas of the field that have provided a first crop already.
While working with Andy to haul a long stretch of plastic I discovered a handful of radishes that hadn’t been harvested – a surprise treat for me.
On the home front, we got into town quick for groceries, collected a few things to thank teachers, read a bedtime story, froze some raspberries our eldest picked and kept up with the bare necessities of keeping a working kitchen.
It was a nice day.
