Onion Weeding

onion weeding
A few months ago, I wrote about PLANTING ONIONS on a local organic farm, RIVERBEND FARM.

Well, a few weeks ago, we returned to the farm. This time our mission was weeding.

onion rowsThe rows looked pretty pristine after we were done. It took a little elbow grease to get there.  When we got there, you couldn’t really see where the rows were. The weeds were bigger than the onions.

It looked a little more like this.

A few onions got accidentally picked.  OK.  Maybe more than a few.

For some reason, my boyfriend felt compelled to take a picture of me coming out of the outhouse.

There were some cool folks hanging out on the farm. People who are passionate about food quality. It’s nice to see that these issues are gaining traction and that everyday folks want to get involved. We’ll return to the farm in a few more months to harvest the onions. I’ll keep you posted…
