Free Farm Stand |

It's nice to be reminded that many of the holidays we celebrate, like Passover or Easter, had some original connection to ancient peoples who were more in touch with their land and soil then we are now. A holiday for every season. Now we are entering the spring season (yesterday someone pointed out to me in the garden two lady beetles humping each other). Besides that kind of love fever in the air, it's a time we should be planting. 50 days of gladness as our hands reach into hopefully loamy soft earth.

Yesterday I think a new record was set for the Free Farm Stand. I filled up the van with more seedlings and plants than I had produced and bread. I thought I had brought more tomatoes than I could give away (and there were more I had left in the greenhouse at the farm), but in the end all tomatoes and zucchini were gone, and most of the plants were gone (except for the Yacón root plants).

So I am thinking about these things and trying to figure out if we should change any of our projects at all. Two stands or one to move-able Free Farm Stand? How to get more help to run the show? Feedback is always welcome.

In the meantime one project that I have been working on for a number of years is moving towards the finish line. On Mother's Day Sunday May 8 from 11 pm-4pm we will be having a fruit tree planting the same time as the Free Farm Stand. If you know any musicians who would like to play some music please invite them. We will also be having some vegan finger food.

Here is some photos of Mike climbing the flag pole at the farm and hanging an Earth Flag over the Free Farm. A reminder that we are all citizens of the Earth and we must take care of our planet (and the people living on it).

Here some photos of the seedlings and plants we had at the Stand ... we still have more if you come to the Free Farm on one of our workdays.
