Tomorrow is our last day of farm work at Hutchins Farm. Things are beginning to feel real!
We spent a VERY cold morning harvesting all of the usual stuff. Cold fingers, wet clothes, and runny noses was pretty much the trend for the first half of the day. However, once the afternoon hit we were joyfully harvesting potatoes and sweet potatoes in warmer temperatures!
The sweet potatoes were the real highlight of the day though.
I do love my sweet potatoes. And if you think for one second that I am not hoarding a bag of these and brining them to Oregon than you are mistaken. I have a secret stash (not so secret anymore!) of some goodies that I am bringing to the west coast. My secret stash of produce is the only thing keeping me from totally losing it right now!
In other news, since we no longer have a working kitchen Taylor and I dined on mediocre food from the Whole Foods hot bar this evening. It was kind of depressing….
Taylor ordered pizza and sushi (don’t ask) and I ordered carrot ginger soup and salad.
The good news is that we are full.
The bad news is that we feel slightly depressed and a lot poorer after the whole experience. We should have gone out for pizza and beer. What were we thinking???
We are almost done with packing and with every box we move out of the house Henry is even closer to having a nervous breakdown. It’s been a rough day.
Off to watch the Vice Presidential debate. Not sure if that will help the mood or make it worse.
Wish us luck on our last day of farming on the east coast. It’s going to be a tear jerker that’s for sure!
