It's what we do

One thing to note about the hot days of June... the weeds sure do grow fast! I'll walk by barely-there weedlings, freshly poking out of a newly planted bed, and sigh with relief that they are still small. The next day, those weedlings are well-rooted nightmares! Matt and I are balancing planning, weeding, planting, harvesting, and going to markets each week -- it's been busy!
A typical week:
Monday is the only day we "sleep in" (or I do at least) but it's also a work day. I usually attempt to tackle some books, while Matt checks up on things. We have a little time to plant, weed, and do general clean-up. We harvest some crops in the evening for the Tuesday market.
Tuesday is a harvest day. We get up early to pick, wash, pack, and get ready for the afternoon Prescott Valley Market.
Wednesday is another work day.
Thursday is both a work and harvest day. We generally work in the mornings, and pick in the evenings for the weekend markets. Thursdays seem to be particularly productive days.
Friday is the BIG pick day. We harvest most of the day, save the hot afternoon hours, for the weekend. Fridays are usually late nights; we will pick until 11 or so.
Saturday we go to the Prescott Market in the morning. When we get home in the afternoon, we pick for the Sunday Flagstaff market. Late nights all around.
Sunday we bounce up the hill to the wonderful Flagstaff market. This market is a nice way to end the week. It's usually cooler up there, and the market is surrounded by trees.
Setting up before the folks arrive at Flagstaff:

Our set-up at Flagstaff:

First Carrot Harvest!!!!!
