Despite this desert flash flood, the crops survived and are growing well! The weeds loved that one too.
More pictures to come!

Matt built us a wash station at the farm and it has made a HUGE difference in our efficiency in harvesting and packing. Before we were picking in the field, packing it in coolers, hauling it home, unpacking, washing, then packing it for market. Yikes. Now we can pick, wash, pack all at the farm, and only haul it once! Woo!

What's growing now? Kale, head lettuce, salad mix, sweet turnips, radishes, spinach, green garlic, and arugula are what we have been harvesting. Broccoli, cauliflower, Swiss chard, onions, beets, and carrots are all in the ground and growing strong, within weeks of harvest. Waiting in the wings for planting are second rounds of everything, as well as squash, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, melons, okra, and all the summer crops.
The first Prescott Farmers Market of the season starts this coming weekend! We'll be there; stop by and say hi!

The ladies are living the good life in their new movable coop! What started out in plans as a home for the turkeys has become an exceptionally functional, disaster-free (so far) chicken house. We have been moving them around the farm with the white portable poultry fencing, from spot to spot every couple of days, depending on the ground and what's growing. Their egg production has declined slightly, as the farm tends to be a few degrees colder than the coop at the house.
However, we have seen the quality of the eggs increase hugely! The yolks have become even darker than they were when the ladies were free-ranging at our house -- so dark they are a rich, deep, yellow ochre. The scrambled eggs we had with breakfast were a vibrant yellow! I look forward to seeing changes in their yolks depending on whether they are on green grass in winter, finished crops during the season, or feasting on sunflower seeds on the wild side of the farm.
