picturesque plots of produce

SPIN farmin’ visit, continued!

We chomped on some celery – something we DON’T grow at Pilgrims’ Produce:

And found some blackberries growing up a fence! I’m not sure if these were actually in their plot or a neighbours…in any case, they were delish.

A perfect green pepper:

This was the only somewhat-weedy bed. In general, the plots were super tidy…must be fun to harvest! Things are slightly more chaotic at our farm šŸ˜›

A cherry tree against perfect blue skies”

The shed where garlic-drying magic happens:

More nice rows of greeeens:

Their house was so neat. I just had to snap a few photos!

There were many interesting critters milling about the piano top:

They had a nice little porch area as well, watched over by some stone chickens:

A sweet gathering space:

A nice stack of colourful bins:

I thought this was some strange decorative plant, but soon found out it was actually amaranth!

We cooked up an appropriately vegetable-centric lunch: a giant, colourful salad with mixed greens, lemon cucumbers, tomatoes, shredded carrots n beets, and dried cherries, and a wonderful assortment of starchy veggies (purple potatoes, kohlrabi, zucchini, etc) cooked in coconut oil and a whole whack of spices. Perfect summer meal!

That’s all for now! I think a thunderstorm’s a-brewin’…I do love the heat, but a bit of a temporary cooldown might be nice.

Oh, I have to wake up at 5:15 to leave super early for market tomorrow…it’s funny, even though I’ve been working here for about 2.5 months now, I STILL kind of despise early mornings. The thought of getting out of bed before 6AM makes me shudder.
