and a shining smile on our faces as we cleaned about 70 lbs of spinach/arugula/salad mix.
And now we can only look forward to an increasing volume of product. The tomatoes and potatoes are all planted and set for success. The lettuce is doing better than it ever has before. Peas are weighing down the trellises, and when you walk through our small orchard you can see the beginnings of fruits. Did I mention there are ground cherries hanging upside down in a hoop house? And we haven't even planted the beans or peppers or or cucurbits outside.
This is going to be a wonderful year on the organic farm, and we hope you enjoy your growing season as much as we enjoy ours. Because after yesterday, it really feels like our growing season and our farm.
We had people picking strawberries as the market stand was happening. Courtney
brought 17 more pints halfway through and we still sold out. They were delicious.

I think after our second market stand, we all feel a little more in the groove of things. Collectively, the feeling of the day was:
And maybe our feelings of success can be attributed to how nice the salad mix looked piled high on the table. Or to tasting the delicious strawberries we grew. Or maybe we all felt so proud just because we finally figured out how to make the old industrial elevator work on the first try every time.
It doesn't matter why we feel good, we just do.
See you all next week at market,
