Essex Farm Note
Week 45, 2015
Just pictures this week…
I’ve been on a sourdough tear. Sourdough bread, sourdough pancakes, sourdough crackers. Enough already with the sour things, the girls say.
A volunteer fava bean plant in the middle of the cover crop. Mark is pointing out the cool little nodules in the roots, which take nitrogen from the air and fix it in the soil.
The field that had tomatoes and eggplant in it until recently has been planted to rye.
We found the other rock in the new field.
Blockhouse Field, fall plowed.
Mark texting with the sows.
Checking out the garlic rows. Pretty straight driving, teamsters.
Winter wheat coming up in the new field.
Jet and Mary, father and daughter, watching for crows.
