Child Labor Season Begins!
It's like Groundhog Day around here, but in a good way! With the amount lettuces and peas coming in, I had to break out the big guns...
This kid is a pro at picking peas, he always gets all the "hiders" as he calls them. Loch isn't much for helping harvest anything, he prefers to be involved in the planting and sprouting of things, packing his magnifying glass and spritzer bottle, and prefers planning the spaces and companion planting to actual transplanting. Finn on the other hand, loves to harvest things.
Groundhog Day - "Pick Lettuce, Pick Peas, Wash Lettuce, Blanch Peas, Freeze Peas, Bake Bread, repeat"!
My squashes are finally up! There are little radishes planted around them as per the Carrots Love Tomatoes book to prevent squash bugs - yeah, that made me laugh too! But at least I could remember where the squash hills were.
One more for Grandma...
