we are not alone

While we sleep things are still happening here on the farm. This can mean going from 50 to 1,000 tomatoes in a weeks time, or it can mean this:

The geese were partying on the back porch.

And sometimes while we are sleeping the lettuce bolts. One day the lettuce is firm, refreshing, crisp, then it gets hot and the lettuce sprouts flower heads and the lettuce itself turns bitter. Two of our favorites did this, and we allowed them to dry up and kept them..and now we have seeds galore. The seeds will be planted today by visitors to the farm.

In just a few weeks we will have plenty of crisp, sweet lettuce again. Cool weather abounds and lettuce loves this!
