Life Lessons and Celebrations

New hoop house:  early May
New hoop house:  mid-June
Within a garden grows so much more than fresh fruits, flowers, and vegetables - life lessons lurk around every leaf, just waiting to be gleaned.  Set-backs this spring reminded us of the importance of foresight, vigilance, humility, adaptability, and detachment.  Oh, and humor....though that admittedly took awhile!  Thankfully the garden is growing so beautifully now you would never know if not for the confessional.

We are coming up on our third Farmers' Market of the season already.  June has blessed us with gorgeous heads of lettuce, rhubarb, and radishes.  This week we will also have those beloved garlic scapes from our hard neck garlic varieties.  Click here for a link to recipes and ideas for cooking with garlic scapes.  Coming soon:  beets, carrots, and cucumbers.

Sometimes it can be a challenge to keep up with life on a small farm with a 2 year-old (and one on the way!) in tow, but life is good.  We love to see you down at the Klamath Falls Farmers' Market, where we can usually slow down a bit and enjoy the happy faces reminding us why it is all worth it!

Happy summer solstice!
