Plant:

  • most of my planting was done back in spring, but I have added succession carrots, bush beans (purple, green and wax), lettuce,  more zinnias and morning glories 

Harvest:

  • lettuce, scallions, dill, parsley, chives, sage, thyme, snap peas 

Preserve:

Reduce Waste:

  • continue to carry water bottle, reusable bags, reusable containers, cloth napkins, etc.
  • compost

Preparation and Storage:

Build Community Food Systems:

  • the biggest development was the birth of the little horse, who will help build our local food system by attracting children and adults alike to our farm market
  • visit local farmers’ markets
  • of course, visit my family’s farm market for anything I can (strawberries!!!)
  • Ed continues to help at his brother’s aquaculture business
