The farm is finally in full bloom!
After spring break, the farm welcomed us back with bright colors, full ____ and ripe produce. The warmer temperatures and sunlight definitely did the whole farm a favor, and the farm looks so lush and beautiful after a rough winter.
After the pea harvest, we moved on to harvest brussels sprouts. Most of the plant went to compost, and some of the nodules were rotten from the rain and excessive humidity a few days before. I got to take home a few brussels sprouts. I plan to eat them next week for dinner. I found a great recipe online for Honey Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts at: keviniscooking.com/roasted-brussels-sprouts-balsamic-vinegar-honey/. I love getting to bring home produce from the farm and make my own delicious creations!
Harvesting will continue periodically, and I'm excited to (literally) see the fruits of our labor this semester. I am looking forward to going to farmers markets in the coming weeks and selling the produce we have.
