harvesting in the rain

Today was wet.  We thought about postponing our harvest until it cleared, but after about an hour it didn’t seem like a clearing was in sight.  So we braved the rain.  The good news is that we had rain gear, coffee, and four-wheel drive.

We harvested all day.  There was only three of us on the crew so it took us longer to accomplish everything. But we did it.  Lots of delicious produce is still producing at the Farm.  Which means more farm fresh recipes to come!

There was plenty of broccoli.

And a lot of scallions.

Here is our  farm friend Justin doing an excellent job with his scallion bunches.

And me trying to keep up!

We ended a long day with a truck full of awesome produce.

And a lot of brussels sprouts that needed to be bagged.

And now we are home.  Dry, warm, and in comfortable upright positions.  Off to Taylor’s parents house for dinner.  Happy Friday!

    With the stand closed, are you still selling at farmers’ markets? I thought by now they were done for the season, too. Just jealous of that gorgeous stuff. All the more for Henry!

      We have a self-serve area set up outside the stand. We will be at the Central Square farmers market tomorrow. But after that we are done with the markets. The produce at the stand should be around for a couple more weeks.

        Thanks for the info — I can come out of mourning for a few more days. I may have missed it, but I don’t think Hutchins mentioned the self-service option to its email list or put it on Facebook.

    Roast the broccoli. Trust me. It’s amazing! Olive oil, s&p, roast at 425 for about 12-14 minutes…then just barely sprinkle with some balsamic vinegar. This is almost better than roasted brussels sprouts. ALMOST.
