Last night was our first Farm Dinner of the season. The menu featured a bounty of local ingredients including our goat milk cheeses and freshly harvested vegetables, local sea urchins and pork prepared by award winning chef Martha Spector. We are planning a series of dinners throughout the summer so check in for future dates and times.

Today it's raining. Eric and I worked on preparing the beds for the beets and onions. We tilled the front beds with the furrower that Eric created for the rototiller, which allowed us to push through the wet dirt and rake it up onto the two new beds leaving a path in the middle. The soil was looking healthy, albeit a bit muddy this morning, but by the afternoon it was far too muddy to work in.
We also weeded the garlic patch, which was planted in the fall. The hay that was laid down on and around the rows is working well keeping the weeds down, so this was a relatively quick and easy endeavor.
The Seamark market started up again this morning so Missy harvested some greens and radishes from the back greenhouse to sell. The market was a bit slow, but Holly's soup, Tinder Hearth bread and good company made for a warm and cozy lunch.
