On this day, the team harvested potatoes. Shiori invited two of her friends from Fayetteville to come over and help, their names were L.J. and Hirona. We also received McKenna, she came to us from Louisville Kentucky on her way west. I can’t forget our newest recruits, David and Marine, coming all the way from Toulouse, France.

Excuse me, where are my manners
We have had a wave of exceptional help lately that has been a positive force in this whole circus. I can say “Thank you” until I’m blue in the face at them, I still don’t think it would do justice to the amount of appreciation that Paul and I have. Thank you again though, for good measure.
Everybody, meet Rose.
She has been a tremendous help for us these past few weeks.
This particular day we harvested the seeds from my spring cilantro and seeded a new bed with them.
Everybody, meet Beth.
Also a big help. Beth is interning on the farm.
Everybody, meet our county fair Grand Champion!
Everybody, meet our first place winner!
Now in this picture are more volunteers, Jason and Jen. I don’t have better pictures of them, sorry Jen and Jason. They too are a great help. This is a picture of the work party today.
So we went to the Washington County fair on Saturday to check up on our winnings. Paul and I got a few blue ribbons and a handful of red for our overripe produce, which isn’t bad. The big winners were Oliver and Isaac. Isaac won a blue ribbon for his sunflower seed head as did Oliver. Oliver also won the purple rosette grand champion ribbon for the junior field crop division. I am so proud. I was strutting around the horticulture building like a spring chicken, I’m surprised I didn’t win a blue ribbon for my strut.
