Here's a pic of the entire field from May 28th.
Foraging (harvesting wild edibles) has been fun this spring. We found a nice small batch of gray and yellow morel mushrooms, and were gifted some, so we have a nice batch drying in the shed. The wild asparagus has been delish--I am always sad when that season wraps up! Next year we will be able to start harvesting our home crop, so that will be nice. We did not find any wild ramps this year, but I am hoping to dehydrate some spring nettle for nutritious tea. Do you forage?
Out of the woods and into the field...spring tends to be salad season! Here is a look at our head lettuce. Three successions of plantings. The spinach is also filling in, and the radishes are looking tasty. I am looking forward to trying this radish butter recipe!

Baby robins all nestled in and growing fast! The abundance of bird life all around is really one of the perks of being outside farming every day.
I had a little fun this past week with the pigs, for Schell's photo contest :) These hogs are really growing fast now.
Have a great week!
