Many of you know that I’m currently working Saturday mornings at my CSA as a workershare…meaning my pay is a share of vegetables. This is my third year doing one, and I’ve learned quite a bit, been paid in tons of organic produce, had lots of fun, and gotten plenty of exercise.
Today is my first week at the farm again after throwing out my back on the 5th, so I was moving slower and more carefully than usual. I cleaned up the packing house and since no instructions were left for me I got started suckering and trellising tomatoes. This is one of the few chores that doesn’t require a lot of bending over, since the tomatoes are ridiculously tall this time of year. We’re going through a cool spell so it was an unusually chilly 45 degrees when I woke up this morning and I had to dig out my fleece!
