2019: Week 12

This week we’re focusing on squaring away our fall crops: weeding the sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts (planted mid-June) and transplanting large blocks of cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and fall kale into the fields. As farmers our minds are always in the next season, even though our bodies are very much entrenched in the hot August sun. I won’t spend too much time on these thoughts here though - there’s still plenty of summer left to enjoy!
