It was a very rainy CSA harvest day, but harvest goes on and muddy beets and carrots can be washed! It has been quite a treat to have the Farm Teen helping out with folding boxes, cleaning, sorting and packing on CSA day. We get some extra time to hang out in the business of summer and she gets a little more insight into what her parents do.
