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!
