Immigration besides, my main reaction was "Huh, what are WE here for anyway?" Maybe I'm just a romantic, but we'll lose more than employment when robots can do all the labor on farm. There's something really beautiful and refreshing about caring for the ground and creation with your own two hands. Sure, it's tiring work some days, but a person sleeps really well and the work gives me, at least, a deep sense of satisfaction.
|Harvest Party last week at Lida Farm|
In this week's CSA box:
A quart of tomatoes: Green Zebras (yes, they are ripe when green) and standard Celebrity toms.
A Couple Colored Peppers
Spaghetti Squash: It's best to store all winter squash in warm, dry locations.
A Buttercup Squash: Boy, this variety did not pull through well this year - terrible, since this is the top choice for many.
A Yellow Onion
French Breakfast Radishes
