For the next few days, we have the Gold Ridge Resource Conservation District's seed drill (for drilling cover crop seed) at our disposal, so I have to take advantage of last nights rain and this machine! It's bedtime for big chunks of the farm right now; they are getting tucked in with compost seeded into a life and fertility giving cover crop mix.

It was a gloriously beautiful harvest morning today; sun shining through dark clouds onto the newly wet earth. The vegetables definitely soaked up that rain. We think you'll be able to taste it in this week's share!

See you in the fields,

David
