& I’ve either been slacking on the photos or more focused on the work – depending how one looks at it.
Looking up & out at the sky, feeling into my body & breathing helps return my awareness to what’s in front of my eyes.
The habit of being in story (behind the eyes) is SO strong. SO ingrained.
But then I laugh at myself, remembering that it’s a practice.
Thank you, Sky.
Yesterday was similar, minus Broccoli, & with the addition of Sorrel and Watercress.
Here’s spinach just popping up
Along with beets, basil, & lettuce.
Basically anything that is not a Brassica (like Cabbage, Kale, Broccoli, & Cauliflower) which would be landed upon by the lovely cabbage moth, then rapidly munched down to misery by the cute-as-a-button larvae.
(That sounds like it just up & walks its way to the barn…)
People either hang or stack in it such a way that it allows for good air flow for the stalks to fully dry.
Garlic keeps better this way.
But, it’s unavoidable if it happens to be a rainy, muddy-muck day when the garlic is harvested.
I was trained to clean garlic this way at Sara’s farm, where I interned in 2006.
Next Sunday is the Garlic Pull at her farm, Earthly Mirth. I’ll be sure to get some photos that day to share.
A half-acre of garlic!
