Today, I helped with the K/1 field trip to a working farm.

Joel scrambled to the top of a hay bale pyramid.


He and I picked 3 large bags of veggies, including corn, carrots, red potatoes, leeks, cucumbers, cabbages, parsley, peppers, pumpkins.


I am positive carrots pulled from soft dirt by hand taste the best. We’ll find out tomorrow, when I hope to have the strength to wash, scrub, and sort our harvest so we can make chicken-veggie soup together.


Joel got a head start on eating the bounty. He tore into an ear of sweet corn, raw, husked on the hayride. I asked if this meant he’d eat the corn I serve sometimes with dinner.


He will think about it.
