As I've been doing work, I've been thinking about the things I want to see more of during the 2017 growing season on our farm. Farmer Delusional Syndrome is still in force - though it is dwindling rapidly as the reality of the work we have to do begins to set in.
One thing I really believe we can have more of is THIS:
|Does he mean the flowers, the tomatoes or the butterfly?|
More flowers seems to lead to more of this!
|A fresh melon out of the fields - YUM|
Even though he startles the farmer, we'd also like more of THIS:
|Ah Cucumber Frog, the bane of my cucumber picking existence.|
Maybe even more of THIS (or not):
|Carrotman just can't get out of the kitchen, even if it is hot.|
Did we mention more of THIS?
|Borage... we LOVE borage.|
And, we would really like more of THESE:
And, we've got the space in the field this year so we can have more of THIS:
|Watermelons are hard to deliver with the CSA, but we sure will try anyway|
Here's to Peas and Prosperity!
|Yes, yes. those are peas.|
