CSA {Community Supported Agriculture} Week 9

Being a part-time wanna-be farmer is so much fun! It's hard work that has you believing you're an 86 year old grandma - bending over 10 bazziollion times, loading cratefuls of the heaviest cabbage on the planet, mucking through mud, swapping at bugs all over your face, using sharp blades that could pierce through your skin at any moment - it's death defying. But! Just take a gander at a morning on the farm and you'll be hoping to jump into the green lusciousness that is this land! 

It's bok choy harvesting this morning! Mike is slicing and I'm packing. I'm packing bok choy. Watch out.
Bok Choy. Not sure I can find anything funny to say about that. 
Oh, Becki - you are so funny. Said Mike.
What? I'm confused. Put the bok choy where?
But for real, being on the farm is very much a learning experience that has been both social and full of camaraderie.

Bending. Bending. Bending.
