A picture perfect day to spend sitting on a grassy lawn, gazing at gorgeous hills and valleys, picking and eating sweet corn and enjoying incredible pot luck food.  Of special note were all of the cabbage dishes.  There were two Asian slaws, two ramen noodle slaws, cole slaws with carrots, cucumbers, peppers.  At least 12 different cole slaws, maybe more.  I chuckled as I cleaned up the food table and collected the food name cards; I’m happy there was a way to use up that cabbage.   Most of the dishes gracing the pot luck table contained lots of farm-grown veggies. (Too bad we don’t grow cocoa and can’t take credit for the delicious deserts).   It’s fun to see the food we grow and deliver come back to the farm in such a beautiful and delicious presentation.  Thank you to everybody who was here, you made the day!

Harvesting sweet corn and eating it raw in the field.  It’s a tradition, David insists everyone taste the corn raw, so if you have never tried it, please do.
