Harvest Day

Wednesday is Co-op day. We market our surpluses with the Fresh Food Revolution. On Wednesdays Roni and I get up extra early to harvest, wash and package our surplus. Early in the morning when the dew is fresh and the air is cool and crisp the garden has a certain quality that is hard to describe. The soil gives off an earthy aroma; the air is sweet with the fragrance of the forest. Our connection to mother earth is affirmed and we are rewarded with nutritious and delicious produce. At least for now, we are still in a honeymoon period were the work while tiring is also enjoyable. Today we harvested 4 bags of Rocky Top Lettuce, one bunch each of Arugula, Rainbow Chard and Bloomsdale Spinach.
