Up Close and Personal

After pulling all those weeds and chopping up the winter vegetables that had bolted or flowered (give this girl a machete and watch her go!), The Lovey tilled the field so everything could compost in place. Now we wait a week or so and then plant the tomatoes. This gives my hands a much needed rest. Instead of being on the field, I am doing a lot of paperwork, the not-so-fun part of farming; bookkeeping, planning, ordering supplies and cataloging seed inventory.

But I am always drawn to the field. So today I bring you some up close photos. Come join me in the dirt and see what's growing on:
Do you see the bee on the borage?

Did you know Borage is an herb? It's leaves can be used in soup!

  1. Beautiful! No wonder the Borage attracts pollinators. I have the little Gems seeds but haven't planted any yet.
