A rainy day, but Small Family Farm had been able to plant seeds in their fields on the previous two sunny, dry days. Jillian, the farmer, hopes the soil will warm up, so there will be organic vegetables ready for CSA share boxes, starting in 5 or 6 weeks. "We really need it to warm up!"
I'm making handwoven curtains for the Small Family kitchen windows in trade for my vegetable share! How wonderful for me! I was in their kitchen on this rainy day, to measure windows, with Jillian, her mom, Jane, and her small daughter, Ayla. Small Family Farm is in my neighborhood, just over the ridge from Avalanche, and I call it my garden.
