“Sow flowers so your surroundings become a garden.” This is from a poem by Rahman Baba, a seventeenth century Afghan/Sufi poet I recently discovered and the words have stuck with me. That is all we are doing at the Free Farm Stand is sowing flowers.
We had one of the largest harvests this year from the Free Farm, 258lbs, due to the fact that we harvested a lot of zucchini. We also had a lot of variety in this weeks harvest, including three kinds of basil, the first of our green bean crop, rocoto peppers, cucumbers,carrots, rhubarb, lettuce, and kale. Our numbers are up and the food went quickly.
