Here’s this morning’s harvest. Along with pickling cucumbers, leeks, purple carrots and yellow plum tomatoes, we got the last of our english peas and the first of our cherokee purple tomatoes and purple kohlrabi. Kohlrabi is pretty cool, it’s known as a broccoli apple. It can be prepared in many ways. Raw in salads, mashed, fried, you name it. This is our first year growing it but not our last.

We’ve been away for a few days helping our daughter Tracy celebrate her birthday. It’s been a while since we got away from our daily chores. My wonderful parents watched the farm while we were gone, which included milking our goats (so sweet of them!) While we were gone, more tomatoes started ripening. It’s going to be a delicious summer!

Of course, we’re so remote we don’t have a cable TV option… Our weather finally allowed us to move the turkeys from the barn into a poultry tractor in the pasture. They have since provided hours of entertainment for our cow, Jessica.
