I've been lucky. During my last week of cart, my dear friend Betsy, from Jackson, was kind enough to hop a train to sunny California and spend some of her vacation days with me on the farm- harvesting, cooking up garlic in the 'Up' for garlic fest, putting on an apron to help stalk and sell produce at cart, and even jumping in the ocean with me twice. It was amazing having someone who really knows me- show up and saddle up to farm life.
And since her departure... harvests continue, field trips are more frequent, food preservation is on the rise and yeah- our final rotation is almost up.
We will find out this week where we will be placed for 'The Final Four'. I'm shootin' for 'The Down', but will soon let you know where I'll be spending my final four weeks in farm camp. Any site will be amazing and has it's advantages and disadvantages. In any case- I'm cooking tomorrow morning (starting at 5am) with my near and dear friend Adelaide. Goodness is sure to rock forth from the kitchen tomorrow. But I must head to bed soon...
On that note- I'll leave you with some sweet pictures of the three varieties of salsa my friend jonathon and I pumped out this afternoon: normal red, salsa verde, and blood peach... if you will.
Be well- keep rockin'.
