It’s Our Pleasure – May 19, 2017

The Fruits of Our Labor

Some Notes from the Field:

We have been working hard in the hoop houses, prepping them for their season-long venture with all of the fruiting crops. As we harvest the salad greens, lettuce heads, scallions, and radishes from their beds, they can then be made ready to hold all of our tomatoes, peppers, and the like.

There is sweet, broad-leafed spinach growing in the field! Along with carrots, more lettuce heads, and some brassicas (to name just a few). Once our fruits have been transplanted, the war against weeds will continue in the field, and we will do our best to keep up. We will savor the fleeting morning chill while it lasts, strengthening our sore and hopeful bodies for the swell of the season.

It’s our Pleasure

“Eating with the fullest pleasure — pleasure that is, that does not depend on ignorance — is perhaps the profoundest enactment of our connection with the world. In this pleasure we experience our dependence & our gratitude, for we are living in a mystery, from creatures we did not make & powers we cannot comprehend.”
