We've been harvesting for restaurants and the market. And we've been weeding. I had someone offer to mow the clover strip in the middle of the field yesterday. Which was a really generous offer, but he couldn't see that that is where the beets are planted. Because no one can see the beets- but they are there!

We've been trying to stay ahead of the weeds, but I think it may be an almost impossible task. Especially the bindweed. Oh, bindweed. Those of you familiar with bindweed know the futility of weeding this plant. The roots of bindweed can extend to depths of 25 to 30 feet, it can grow a new plant from the littlest bit of root left in the soil, and the plant breaks very easily and grows so fast and binds to everything.. and.. and... okay. I'll stop. I won't let the weeds get me down. Let's get back to summer. How can I be down with ripe tomatoes like these! I invite you to stop by and check out the farm!
