tomatoes & potatoes & other things too

Harvesting fills the majority of our workday these days. Thankfully, we have several devoted volunteers that show up every week regularly to help out!

Here Farmer Dave is showing helpers what shade of ripeness to pick the tomatoes at:
Little Daniel looks impressed at the amount of tomatoes we picked!
We also dug a whole row of potatoes!

3 pounds of potatoes to each member...
Our new t-shirts look great:
This was again another bountiful distribution-- 4 cucumbers, 1 pound beans, 3 summer squash, 1 1/2 pound carrots, 3 peppers, 1 eggplant (only?),
6 pounds of tomatoes!!!
4 heads of lettuce!
1 pound of swiss chard, 3 leeks, 1 1/2 pounds of red onions!
And pick-your-own cilantro, basil, parsley, dill, beans, scallions, flowers, and cherry tomatoes!

When I'm not harvesting, I'm planning for next year's crops.... dreaming up which lettuce varieties to plant and brainstorming what to call my farm next year!
