Rocks used for holding down row cover moved out of the garden on pallets. Now that we have pallet forks we can move a lot of things around on pallets. Yippee!

      I see them around occasionally, usually under rocks, but it definitely surprised me to see one hiding in the spinach; I have never seen such a big black widow spider before!

    I love all the pictures!! We set out to buy your vegetables this morning after seeing your website. I love that I am all the more connected to the food I’m eating after seeing this. Please continue posting interesting photographs for us city folks. =D

      Thanks Amy. It is actually looking pretty dreadful out there right now. I always find it hard to keep moving forward this time of year when the pest pressures are high and weeds are starting to really get out of control, and we’ve been pushing so hard since early February. Time for a few days off I think for a little perspective. Hope things are going well for you. Your market shots look awesome!
