So I feel pretty legit. In addition to all the harvesting (napa cabbage, artichokes, snow and snap peas, and garlic) I also have sore legs and arms (from crouching and pulling, and digging, and reaching),  and a sore thumb (from a mean lemon tree poking me).  I am pretty sure that means I am a real farm hand.

Yesterday we did a huge harvest for the CSA, including home deliveries. After had a much needed mid-day nap.

Looking forward to hiking a huge mountain in the area, and riding coyote Creek Trail also on my time off.

Woke up early and started the day before it rose to the mid 90s. Helped clear two rows of squash of weeds, trellessed one row of squash plants, collected eggs from the very sweet hens, and assisting in some organic debugging- smash! (So gross).

…and the planning continues

Leaving for my first farm today, Sunday . Packed and ready to go!

Spoke to another farm/homestead in Oregon for the month of August that sounds like a perfect fit- camping, survival skills, and sustainable agriculture; which during my stay I will be harvesting, planting for fall, and likely doing some hide tanning.
