our day at the farm, part 2

Picking sorrel at the Hauters' farm:

We missed the asparagus -- it went fast -- but came home with some eggs, rhubarb and herbs in addition to the aforementioned sorrel. We picked a decent-sized bagful, enough for a pot of soup, I think.

Anyway, we had a great time. You can tell Leigh really enjoys having customers come visit. He's a talker! We were thanking him and preparing to leave when he said, "Wait, can I show you around the greenhouse?" :) And we shareholders are all invited out again in a couple weeks to pick up any extra seedlings he doesn't put in the ground. I also heard him say something about potlucks for shareholders later in the season, which I am totally up for. I'm so glad we signed up for this!

It looks so nice and peaceful in those pictures. Farming/gardening sounds like so much fun!

The strange thing about this farm was that it was in the middle of the woods. Every foot of land that wasn't cleared for planting was thick with trees. It's difficult to imagine the amount of work that must have gone into clearing the land, especially because it was probably first cleared a century or two ago.
