i took a little 'blog vacation' for the past few days. things have been busy on and off of the farm, picture taking is lacking, and so is the blogging...
i come back bearing no pictures. i promise that tomorrow will have such fruit.
here's the quick round-up of farm life over the past few days:
thursday night, creek, devin, and i went to a discussion about saving seeds. it was great to gather with other farmers in the area and talk about some of the politics within growing food and concerns of the future of farming, and, in turn, the future of food. in fact, we briefly discussed a film with such a title: the future of food. we also talked about where the seeds that we plant come from, what is practiced in other countries, how laws and patents and corporations play into the whole thing, etc. it was an interesting and thought-provoking discussion. i'm really glad that such gatherings take place.
friday was spent seeding, watering, and transplanting lettuce. heidi and i found some coop time, but now that the pants are awake and ready to grow, the chickens are going to have to wait!
i got a little farm-girl vacation and visited the Chelsea this weekend. (the hotel project i managed/lived in last summer) it was so great to be there as a guest! the food was delicious (and locally grown!), and so was the spa...
today, devin, time and i took to the fields to plant some of those potatoes we cut up last week. it did NOT feel like april, but it was nice to get away from the cold, wet winter weather that seemed to lurk a little too long! sun-shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine!
