Tuesday’s lunch was very special. Sid, one of our Cambodian workers who has been with us for 8 years, treated us all to a fabulous meal. Rith, her son-in-law, told me she worked all day Sunday preparing the chicken and beef kabobs and eggrolls. Exactly at noon on Tuesday all 21 of us filled up the barn kitchen and shared a meal that we will remember for a long time. This will be Sid’s last year working with us and this meal was a thank you gift from her. We all have appreciated each other so much over the years. The Cambodian crew has become the backbone of the farm. We couldn’t do it without them. They are very hard workers and wonderful people.

What a special lunch! Look at that line-up of deliciousness. A feast that can’t be beat.

A few of us on the other end of the table. Sid and Becky, our farm cook, are sitting next to each other. Since Becky didn’t have to cook on Tuesday she took the opportunity to freeze peppers for next season’s meals.
