The Mighty Harvest

Did you hear that? It was the fields (well, most of them) slurping down all of that much-needed water this week. We irrigate our fields, so water falling from the sky is not always vital. But of course it is usually welcome.

The downside? The weeds sure do love water falling from the sky.

Scenes from Friday’s harvest? Coming right up. And after the photos, the list.

Cucumbers - we have lots. We will be making pickles.

Onions + peppers + tomatoes = salsa. If only we were harvesting cilantro this week, too.
