Farm Dinner

Minimal preparation, just sliced tomatoes and basil, sliced cucumbers, steamed beans with thyme.

Farm renovation

There's been a lot of construction on the farm this season. The barn in the background is nearly complete. But the even bigger project has been to replace the crumbling concrete. We're laying down red brick (having it laid down is more accurate). It's been a few weeks of demolition and transporting 1400lbs of red bricks through the homestead. The upshot is that the brick will be stronger and taller than the concrete was. And it'll hold the dirt in. All the crops are doing well considering.
