I never thought the day would come when I was willing to give my overall well-being to the food I put in my body.
I know that sounds silly. Your well-being and food go hand in hand right? But still…
Does the vitamin K I get from our kale counteract heat stroke?
Does hoeing endless rows of carrots, beets, and onions in 98 degree weather help to absorb their nutrients more? ( I am pretending the answer is yes!)
Will eating lots of fresh basil sooth my sunburned arms? (of course. Right?!)
Does sunscreen even work when it’s 98 degrees out?
Probably not. But a nice cold beer does wonders for the skin.
In case you were all guessing, today was a particularly hard day at the Farm. I may have even shed a few exhausted tears on our way home from work. But hey, beer is good for that too, right!
I am actually SO tired that I will not post whatever we end up cooking tonight until tomorrow. However, here is a sneak peek:
Right before we left work we harvested arugula, summer squash, swiss chard, and garlic scapes. Summer really is here. Along with ticks, sunburns, and dehydration! No pain, no gain!
