There are few things in this world I hate more than the ringing of an alarm clock at the crack of dawn. It just never feels right to wake up when every ounce of your body is telling you to stay in bed for just a few more hours. It’s the worst.
But things start to feel better when the coffee maker kicks in and the smell of freshly brewed coffee finally puts that extra spring into your step. It’s amazing how coffee can change a whole morning. We can’t live without it.
And thank god we made ours extra strong today because there was a lot to be done at the farm. We seeded 7,488 seeds of corn in the greenhouse, planted 1800 heads of lettuce by hand, and planted so many onions that I could not keep track. To say the least, it was a busy day. And my hamstrings can attest to that!
The only break we had was to sit on the back of the tractor waiting for our driver (Taylor) to come plant onions with us. He drove while we sat on the transplanter and planted away.
Crazy looking bunch of farmers!
Serious tractor driver. He had precious cargo so he went extra slow!
Beautiful onions. I can’t wait until we harvest these puppies. They are the best!
All the hard work today made us extra hungry for dinner. However, I was not in the mood to get creative so dinner was easy.
Oven roasted carrots, broccoli, and asparagus over quinoa. We mixed in leftover arugula pesto wich was an amazing addition!
With a glass of red wine. Simple but oh so flavorful. Have a great evening.
