|May Arcadia Peas ripe for harvest!|
Today is the Summer Solstice, a time for both joyful celebration for the abundance on the farm right now, and quiet reflection upon the previous months' toil. It is quite hard to believe that only a few short months ago, we were training pea shoots through the trellis, weeding and mulching and feeding and watering them, waiting for the first sign of a pea pod. And even just a few short weeks ago, we harvested the last of the pea crop and folded over the vines to feed the soil for next year.
|Ripe Sun Golds: |
Your first taste of Summer
Happy Solstice to everyone and I hope you are celebrating the bounty of the season with a nice salad and something really cold to drink. Perhaps, you'll be lucky enough to find a Sun Gold today! Many thanks to Farmer Mo for saving one for me!
