Well, you can see I need my wine box pronto! Today was the first day of distribution for my organic farm share. It seems there is something about bicycles, public libraries, and community gardening that all go together. I'm not the only cyclist enjoying a share in an organic farm and I'm not alone in maintaining and enjoying a Community Garden plot. I wonder why these things just seem to fit together so nicely, like a contentment jigsaw puzzle?
It's going to all work even better when I put that produce in a wooden box and use a bungee cord net to keep it all safe. My filets/string bags did not work well as pictured. However I hope the veggies will be as good as pictured:
Though it's clearly off-topic, I'm so excited about our local food I want to share what we got:
- two heads of lettuce (chosen from many varieties)
- .33 lb salad greens
- .66 lb spinach
- 1 bunch radishes
- 1 bunch cilantro
- 3 Hakurei turnips
- 1 bunch chive flowers
We'll be eating well tonight!
My community garden plot isn't doing as well yet. It's off to a slow start but I'm starting to get some flowers and I think the dill and basil will be taking off soon. I'm hoping!
