Farm Share 2019 Week 11 (Aug 14-17)

Over 1,000 Boxes of kale picked this weekend!

Did you do anything exciting over the weekend? It was crunch time getting a massive kale order ready. Over 1,000 boxes were sent out, and it was amazing having the whole crew working all together all Friday and Saturday. We really can accomplish so much together. Thankfully I had some help with the kids so I didn’t have to chase my toddler like usual 🙂

Another highlight of this week was visitors! I was blessed to show some friends around the farm, as well as a missionary family that is improving their community through gardening. Sharing the farm with others leaves me energized! Organic farming really is a gift.

Another thing I can’t seem to stop myself from doing in the middle of my work day is spotting and photographing butterflies, and there have been so many different types around!

In all the busyness, I did not take a picture of your lovely farm shares! I’m going to have to list it like old times. Hopefully with a few months under your belt you can identify the items.
