i love this stuff

Sometimes you need three hands.  I wish I had one so that I could take a picture of my other two, tomato ooze covered hands.  I love the smell of tomato plants…….and eventually I hate the smell of tomato plants because I get sick of them.  However, not long after the plants are dead and … Continue reading »

Week #9

I can’t believe we’re already 9 weeks into the season. The farmer and I were just marveling at the fact that we’ve been here for 6 months; it’s amazing how much progress has been made on this sweet little farm here in Hampton, SC. The farmer drove solo to Savannah with our CSA veggie drop this morning, … Continue reading »

Freedom to be a Loved Chicken

A few days ago I caught the first 25min of the movie “Fresh”.  I’ve seen similar food documentaries and heard about this one so I didn’t expect to be “wow-ed” much.  They were doing a segment where they interviewed a couple who factory farm meat chickens and something caught my eye and jerked my heart.  I … Continue reading »

The Melon Patch

The Farmer began to prep the watermelon patch today. For starters, he scythed the entire area, because the cover crop of abruzzi rye was doing fine job of reclaiming the area, even though it had a recently been tilled for us by a neighbor. I think the farmer was more excited to use his new scythe than he … Continue reading »

Week #8-trial by fire

So, last Saturday we left the farm at 7am, as usual and had a nice drive from Hampton to Savannah. Upon our arrival into beautiful downtown Savannah we were greeted with absolutely zero warning that there was a run, walk, relay (I’m still not exactly sure what we drove into) going on, so as we … Continue reading »

Assorted Randomness

This is a picture of a row, my toe, and my tiller.  Get it?  This big honkin rake thing is good at fluffing the top most layer of dirt.  I just planted more spinach and arugula.               Our friend “Mr. Jimmy” is a genius.  This is his trailer that … Continue reading »

Deep Roots

  When buying seeds some seed companies give you an anticipated “days to harvest” for each particular variety and a percentage of how many of the seeds germinated in their tests.  I think if I were to buy a packet of “Assorted Weed Seeds” it would say, “germination-100%, days to harvest- 0.5” Today was mostly … Continue reading »

“I don’t know why there isn’t a king bee”

Today my day was filled with bees and bee talk.  I spoke to two groups of school children about honey bees for a total of two and a half hours.  Both groups were about fifty kids each i’d say, the first group was made up of three and four year olds, the second group was … Continue reading »
