Old peas. The farm has adopted no-till so we just cut them off and leave the roots now. Far better for everyone. If you’re not already practicing no-till, you should be. 🙂
Grasshopper. No, I don’t kill them. They make a gross, crunching sound when you do.
The pinkie pigs eating the peas.
A few various scenes from the farm.
These are the Kunekune pigs. The little red one was suspected to have escaped but perhaps reentered the pen while we were searching. We’ll never be sure. All I know is I reached my step goal before noon that day. 😀
Kale for transplanting.
Dirt from the farm for the school garden.
One of the school beds I fixed up for a lesson at the end of the month.
It was very clear this month. Some great views. I try to enjoy them while I can. I’m sure that this field will be about 500 houses soon if the city has anything to say about it.
I sneaked some pics of Farmer Boy while he was working.
A day off school means a morning working at the farm. They were very good helpers, though. 🙂
Braniac on the tire swing.
Some lettuces…and such.
Baby leeks to transplant.
Bare root blackberries.
Turkeys, waiting, um, anxiously for Thanksgiving. 😉
Kunekunes in the morning.
A few swiss chard for transplant. They didn’t get watered quite as good as they should but I think they are happy in the ground now.
I spent a few days working to prep some beds for a lesson at the end of the month. Unfortunately, I got stung by something on my knee and couldn’t even bend my leg for several days. Still don’t know what it was except painful.
A couple sky pics.
Creating cabbage seedlings.
As I pointed out on Twitter…this smells wonderful. 😀
Another sneaky mom photo.
Spock was bored one day while we waited for Farmer Boy so I sent him to take some pics around the place.
In case you didn’t hear, or smell, there was a fire near the farm. Even after the rains it burned.
And these, I’m sorry to say, are all the pics I remembered to take during the lesson at school. My photographer was at home babysitting his little brother, and I tend to be, well, teaching. 🙂
