Insect Duty:
The chickens are now being allowed roam the whole farm during the day, looking for bugs to eat.

Celery lookin' good. I'm happily anticipating celery harvest. John's celery is much more flavorful than the grocery store stuff.

Blueberries beginning to ripen.

Portulaca. Note the red stems. A relative of purslane. When I was chatting with Kathleen during CSA pick up time this morning, she mentioned that she had planted some at the front of the farmhouse this week.

No need for shovels right now. Harvesting is the order of business on Saturdays.

Empty boxes at the end of pick up time are always a good sign. See you next week!
