A Farm in Miniature

June 15, 2014



Even though the spring crops are just starting to come in, the greenhouse already looks like fall. The benches are beginning to fill with flats of kale, cabbage, broccoli and celery, and the parsnips are germinating well in the fields. It’s always fun to straddle the seasons in that way–harvesting what’s in season and tending what’s to come. Looking out over the rows of tomatoes, winter squash, peppers, and sweet potatoes, I can see everything from grassy picnics to Thanksgiving dinners. It never gets old.
