|humbled indeed when we discovered|
one of the birds was feasting on our figs!
who can blame them though?
As we've talked about here, farming keeps us humble
and on our toes—there are things we plan for and can expect and often things we can't.
We are always adapting and learning.
The farm reminds us that it is an alive and constantly growing place.
|not much time between the planting of the upper quad|
|and the winter squash explosion!|
Sometimes it is the surprises we find that are
even better than what we expect to see.
|we are still amazed at the blossoms on our tomato plants|
Some other farm highlights include:
|we always love the first fig sighting|
behind "the fig"
|and this one at the farm.|
|knowing that even those these tomatoes are green,|
they are ready
|and will soon be these "fried green tomatoes" at|
the girl & the fig
|encountering a bee hard at work|
|and a lizard too. Can you find this guy?|
|cropping makes him a little more visible,|
but his camouflage suit is pretty good
|and running into this bird right outside the orchard|
he was busy getting his dinner too!
The farm is in flux right now as we transition
from summer to fall and look ahead to winter.
|summer squash competes with|
|winter squash to inspire the chefs!|
|these beds will soon have leeks & garlic|
|and our Atlantic Giant squash is close to harvesting|
|did you know Atlantic Great squash have been bred for 130 years?|
|and our persimmons will soon be ready|
What surprises do you find in your garden?
