my Thursay mornings- week 10
One thing I do that a lot of people don't know about is work at a CSA ( community supported agriculture) farm on Thursday mornings. It is part of a six month commitment as a work-share at the Cosmic Apple farm in Victor, ID. For 5 hours starting at 7am we weed, plant, hoe, harvest, cover, re-harvest, weed some more and whatever else needs done on the farm that day and as payment we get a share of the crop. We are currently on week 10 of the harvest time, about month 4 for the work-share portion. Here are some photos from the harvest on Sept 2.
The crop list is as follows: tomatoes, peppers: green, banana, jalapeno; eggplant, zucchini, cucumber, cosmic salad mix, kale, sunflowers, beans: green, yellow, flat; and basil. It was a good week.
The ceramic bowl and canister you see are by a potter out of Portland, OR, Laura Cooke.
