Don't worry we don't just toss out thinnings. Baby plants are delicious
Morning appreciation- purple sprouting broccoli, a bin of veggies for trading for eggs with a neighbor. Eating fewer barcoded foods has been such a delicious blessing. Thanks Scott and Robin of New Earth Farms (not on insta). .

Season’s starting with two greenhouses full of plant babies- heated (#1) and sun-heated. (Aaron pictured, Jesse linked b/c we all do the work)

The only thing better than a field full of winter squash is one with sunflowers that are about to pop open #csafarm, #allthewintersquash #veggiesloveflowers
💜 the sunset shades of seeker statice. I’ve always hated this flower for its stiffness and colors, but I’m so happy to be converted. Pink, orange, coral, contrast centers? Yes! And so many thanks to @northernskiesmama for bringing this to Stoneboat! #csafarm #staticeflower
