Thoughts: End of Farm Week…on the front range.

Today is the last day of our farm work in the Front Range of Colorado at Abbondanza Organic Seeds and Produce. We head out on Sunday to the North Fork Valley for 9 days of farms there. If you haven’t seen my Facebook photo posts, here is a quick recap of what we harvested.

Lettuce

Rich, showing us how to bundle Radishes.

We were professionals by the end of the row…and we still had 2 more rows after that one.

Van full of Kale

Cleaning lettuce and arugula. I can’t tell you how good farm fresh arugula smells.

Dragon carrots

Broccoli

Onions…yeah we picked over 5000 in 4 hours…hard farm life.

Fragrant Tobacco Flowers and Seeds…we harvested the seeds.

Tomato seeds from this years crop of tomatoes…ready to be dried for next years sale.

All in all, a great experience. Farmers might just work the hardest – my back and legs are feeling it.

On to another adventure for the next 9 days. I’ll be posting and tweeting as the days go on…
