The week ahead.
We feel blessed here to be quarantining in such abundance.
Since we all have time, we thought we could share this experience with you.
We are spending this time giving extra care to the keiki plants, seeding and feeding and getting them planted in a timely fashion. When their roots have grown strong enough to hold their ground and prepare them for growth in the wild garden.
We are feeding the soil. Getting caught up on replenishing the plants with their nutrients and keeping the pests at bay after all of the rain. We use fish emulsion often, and we also make preparations of starchy root crops and Indigenous Microorganisms that we ferment and drench crops with in the field.
We are getting back in the fields after all of the rains. Assessing crop damage, clearing beds to prepare for new seedings or transplants. Harnessing those sunny hours to get cultivating done or transplant or seed or rototill. Constantly handweeding and cleaning up areas to create more airflow or growing space for the veggies we are tending to.
We are harvesting and washing your food. With love and fun. We've got tunes on and lately we've got some gloves and masks on also. We are washing our hands. We are washing our hands. We are washing our hands. We are washing your food and we are thinking about how important it is for us to get it to you safely.
These days, we are harvesting ginger to replant. And some to bring to you.
We are also harvesting Mango turmeric (!), which we will put in your shares this week to try! It is also known as Curcuma amada. It has an amazingly floral and mild flavor. Its easy to eat- like a carrot, and it tastes like the some of our favorite varieties of mangoes.
We are loading our diets up with all of the nutrient dense foods we have available on the farm. We are bringing this food to you so you can stay as healthy as possible also!
Mahalo for reading. We hope we see you this week! Here is what we have for you!
Stay well. Aloha.
