It seems like with farming it’s a lot of “hurry up and wait.” So we have been hurrying, hurrying, hurrying to get things planted, mulch laid and weeds out. Now we are waiting. We have had to delay the start of our CSA for one week due to weather.
Then last night there was a storm. One of those storms that make even us adults nervous. You sit in darkness and think how deep it is and they all of a sudden the sky lights up and you see the trees waving furiously and you worry about the animals and the greenhouse and then finally you sleep. Then this morning
Strawberries! They had been green all last week but the heat and humidity and I am guessing something in the storm signaled growth. Makes me think about storms a bit different.
Finally the first taste of summer.
