June 26th and 29th

Summer Solstice

The longest days of the year are upon us.  We are greeted with a beautiful conjunction of the waxing gibbous moon and Jupiter, cool nights for sleeping and 0.52" of rain!!!  In the kitchen, we are finishing up the last of the storage roots, making way for new ones to come, and pairing them with fresh dill and summer greens.

In the fields, Simon inspects the chard and kale, making sure they are insect and rodent free.  His playful countenance keeps us in check during our long work days and farm filled focus.

Zach continues to create flavorful dishes using our farm's bounty.  Even simple cooked meals astound our taste buds, but he still likes to express his artfulness in using lots of spices and time ladened recipes.  He just came in from helping string drip tape in the fields and was "excited, the best part of his day" to come and cook a pork roast we have thawing in the fridge.  Me?  I am ready to relax in the hammock with a beer....oh but I guess I am still working too writing the next!

This Week's Bounty:  lettuce, scallions, beets w/greens, hakurei turnip w/greens, kale ...
