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!
