Today is a great day to donate. Two marathons and two charities! Let's raise a combined $6,500 for cancer research through Fred's Team and low-income seniors with Housing Opportunities and Maintenance for the Elderly (H.O.M.E.)!

Donate to H.O.M.E. here. Donate to Fred's Team here. More information here!

I understand why Cain's face fell. Farming is hard work. Or it would be if I stuck at it for more than a few hours. Fortunately, I only had to play at being a farmer. Here are a few pictures I took when I was supposed to be weeding and picking and otherwise actually working. If you want to get a bit of dirt under your fingernails and feel connected to the earth, your food, and all that grows under the sun, then visit Bare Bottom Farms.

The laborers entering the garden.
The farmer and his tomato.

Grapes. Not really part of the farm, but I like how they are growing on rebar.
Cole Slaw, Big Mama, and Pig. Recycling unsold vegetables into pork.
It's all work on the farm until someone falls into the river.
Guarding the farm with the biggest tongue I've ever seen.
More Produce
Even more produce
Work doesn't stop just because the sun goes down.
Squash get a cooling bath before being sent to CSA members.
And the earth brought forth vegetation...
