June 9th – The Second Week

After an exciting weekend at the farm, we are back at it for the second week of the share. Yesterday afternoon, Dairé spotted our Milking Shorthorn Hattie acting strangely, and soon afterward we had a calf! Hank is a small bull, brown with white spots like his mother. While few things can compare to that excitement, we’re also busy in the gardens. This time of year we always have something new to plant. The tomatoes have just gone into the ground thanks to an awesome crew of workers last Tuesday. We’ve seen tiny seedlings grow into beautiful greens, which after a cool spring are a welcome sight. This week we are harvesting the first kohlrabi (rumor has it kohlrabi make great oven fries – just add olive oil and a little salt and roast until they’re soft!).

Looking forward to seeing all of you later this week!
