The Gift Of Friendship
Our truly lovely friends interned at an organic farm in Austin this summer and brought bagfuls of organic veggies to our home when they came to visit this week. They have aspirations of becoming organic farmers themselves so the conversations often turn to how to build a root cellar, making a proper arugula salad, goats vs. cows and the such. This is truly a gift.
Here are some updates on the other happenings in these parts.
My babies are moving into their awkward adolescence or pullet stage.
We moved the closet veggies out to the sun to harden off before planting. It's better to slowly get the plants adjusted to dealing with real sun, wind and rain in the safety of their pots before just taking them from the sheltered indoors to the great outdoors.
And here is our top secret garden design- hidden among Dirtiest Kid in the World's art work and photos. It is drawn to scale and shows how we are going to rotate all the crops. It is DHIW's masterpiece. (Also it is true- God does know when you don't tip.)
Hope you have a happy weekend!
