July 20, 2013

This week's farm news:

First of all, don't forget that tomorrow is our swimming/potluck party here at the farm between 1-6 pm. We hope you can make it! See our website for directions.

On the farm this week, two very big projects were accomplished. First, we harvested our onions for storage and have them curing in our greenhouse. Second, we dug our potato crop. And we were kind of in a hurry to get them out of the ground because rain was headed our way. So Eric and I, and Jesse and Hannah, grubbed and sweated and got really dirty and sunburned and grubbed and sweated some more. We did have the new potato plow on the tractor this year, which made the whole process much more manageable. But if you happen to catch us yawning and looking a little bleary-eyed, you'll know it was for a very good cause... Ahhh, potatoes!
