As this internship comes to an end (sadly), I'd like to dedicate this post to the little things. There are somethings that I will never forget from this experience. I've witnessed life and death, from seed to the compost pile. The silly yet very catchy signs located all through the farm. All of the volunteers that I have met along the way and my fellow interns. And especially my first taste of a persimmon. So I would just like to thank Michael and the Howdy Farm! for this special opportunity and a very wholesome last semester. Here are some pictures from my last week at the Howdy farm.
Everything is huge! I missed a week and when I got back everything was super big compared to the last time I had seen them. I'm convinced Michael dug mine out and replaced them with bigger ones. Of course I'm kidding , the rain must have really help them grow. Last week we got the last of our seeds in from Rare seeds. One more variety of pac choi (purple lady) and one more variety of collards (morris heading). I did not like the look of the new seeds because they had a lot of variety in them compared to Johnny's seeds. you can see the variation in the first picture in the second row. The second picture in the second row is my personal favorite. It is the flower of an okra plant which surprised me because I had never seen one. Then I found out that they were in the Malvaceae family and it all made sense.
