Our farm doesn’t run on any schedule but its own. When we prepare for our Saturday CSA delivery on Tuesday and Wednesday, we check the fields for ripening and maturing plants. Kelly inspects the plans and discovers newly developed things like peas, raspberries, mulberries. We let everyone know about the delicious, sweet new fruits and vegetables they are going to receive.
Then, they ripen on the following Monday or Tuesday. Instead of being ready on Friday when we harvest, the plants take their own, precious time. I guess the anticipation is part of the game.
