Finally the rain stopped. It has been our wettest May in the history of Forever and our farming schedule is off. So, this week before school lets out for summer, I took advantage of my ever ready farmhands. Many hands do make light work and we were able to harvest 98 pounds of potatoes, onions, garlic and green beans. These were taken to the Network Ministries for their food pantry. Thanks to the kids who run the farm. This farmer couldn't do it without them.
And then there was this...,
You just never know what will happen out on the Farm!
This past week, we had some visitors from the American Heart Association and Slow Foods stop by during Farm Club. We had umbrellas cued for our current Seattle-like weather, so that a little rain wouldn't get in our way. As always, it was a great time and community connector with really interesting folks. Thanks to the 4th Grade Girls Farm Club for your hospitality!
Our Mother's Day gift making event was a great success. We really love our Mamas! The kids planted coleus from the farm into cute little painted cans and added some personal touches to them. They made some yummy salad dressing and special cards to give to mom on her big day. It was a great time! Look for more farm crafting fun to come our way on Fathers Day and other holidays in the upcoming months. Thanks for your support! We hope it was a wonderful day!
