Perhaps this is a preview (without the many hours of manual labor) of life at Adamah –
I traveled this past weekend with some friends to a “Tomato Fest” at the farm that I get a weekly farmshare box from in Capay, CA. Some riding on tractors, some frolicking in fields, some tomato tasting and voting, some indie band jamming as we toasted in the sun. It felt like summer. And it made me excited to spend more time on a farm. Highlights here:
What I learned (or re-learned):
- I legitimately feel more connected to my farmshare box after seeing the farm…and am much more fully appreciative of the work done across a large distance and many fields for that one box to arrive at my door
- There are SO MANY more kinds of tomato flavors than I previously understood. One kind we tasted even had “chocolate” in the title…and that wasn’t far off from what it tasted like
- Babies running in sprinklers just WIN. At everything.
- Wide open spaces = Ahhhhhhhh (refreshing)
