Pictures from the Farm

So when people heard I’d be volunteering at an organic farm for a week they asked, “So what will you be doing?”  And I really wasn’t too sure.  “Whatever they need I think – harvesting, weeding, planting…”  Turns out I was right!  Here’s some pics of what we worked on yesterday:)

These onions were harvested before we got here. We trimmed them and cleaned them up a little for the CSA members.

The Main Barn at Sisters Hill Farm - where we meet each morning at 6 to find out the days plan.

Garlic Hanging in the Rear Barn - We took it from here, cut off the stems and roots, and made it look pretty for the CSA folks.

Members pick up their produce on Tuesdays or Saturdays. Here’s what they got yesterday.  Of the items listed, I played a part in harvesting the basil, zucchini,  potatoes, garlic, onions and cilantro.  Note that members can pick their own herbs and flowers, too!

  1. Sounds like you are having fun being a farmer and getting all dirty. I try to buy organic produce but it is not always available. Hope it is not too hot where you are.
