Busy week! Photo-farm-update for you

Should have seen this coming. With N. still working full time I am racing about trying to get things in order and getting lots of things partially done! I generally consider my time spent successfully if I've accomplished worthwhile tasks while being aware/present enough to appreciate the glorious and peaceful setting in which I work. Taking time and cultivating this awareness is far more difficult than one might think, at least for me.

While I do some quick bookkeeping and then go outside to do all the things, please enjoy a photo update from the farm!

 My uncle visited on Monday/Tuesday, and he and I finally laid some drip irrigation on the soutern portion of the vegetable plot. Then he and Nicholas transplanted tomatoes in the rain! I of course did not have any photo capturing device to catch evidence of their hard work in action! Next time...

 Weekly photo taken Tuesday morning. The distant beds are prepped and planted, and tarps are moving around for plantings that will happen if I ever stop writing.

 One of our multiple seas of stinging nettle. We will be selling the tender tops at the  Midtown Farmers Market  on Saturday! We plan to harvest here for about an hour on Friday, and then convince people to buy nettles for multiple hours on Saturday. We will also offer radishes, arugula, and a beautiful salad mix on our first market day.
