FARMER UPDATE:

Notes From the Field: Hooray for Carrots!

By Farmer Kalina

Spring carrots have arrived! 在过去的几个月里,我们曾多次尝试种植胡萝卜,但都失败了. 我们经历了发芽不良、极端天气和杂草争夺阳光和营养. Despite all of this, we kept trying. 在种植蔬菜时,有时有些因素是我们无法控制的. What worked last year may not be the perfect solution for this year; farming is an ongoing learning process. And this season, through it all, 这一排和随后的一连串终于开始有足够大的收获! This morning, 我手里拿着音叉朝胡萝卜排走去, 丽贝卡难以置信地看着我,问我是不是终于开始收获胡萝卜了. 当我证实了她的怀疑后,她急切地问我是否可以收获它们. 我觉得这很有趣,因为胡萝卜通常不是农场里收获的最有趣的作物. 不像其他根菜,它们的茎可以很容易地从土壤中拔出来, 胡萝卜容易折断或失去叶子,需要用沥青叉挖出. On top of that, 直到胡萝卜脱离地面,人们才知道它到底有多大, 做叉子让人兴奋,也让人失望. All of that said, after waiting for these carrots for so long, getting to harvest them again was a real treat. 通过辛勤的劳作,找到这样的快乐时刻是很重要的!
