June 30th, 2014

After a jam-packed weekend filled with food trucks, family, and farm chores squeezed in between, this morning I hugged my mom and sister goodbye and headed inside for our weekly staff meeting. Grandma, Megan, and I are all somewhat under the weather, so we (tried) to take it slow. Megan and I harvested green beans, squash, cucumbers, and tomatoes while Beth worked at East. We got interrupted for a few minutes to help Joe move the pigeons into their new palace. The old cage is fairly small, so I had to run around with my head tucked down, weaving over and under various perches without smacking my head on anything while six pigeons flapped their wings in my face. I felt like I was in a much sweatier, less glamorous remake of The Birds. But in the end we nabbed every bird without any major mishaps and they’re now living in luxury so it’s a win-win.

Ryan spent the day figuring out how to install the plumbing for the washer and dryer in the barn that will be used both for the milking rags and for the male WWOOFers living in the bunkhouses. Grandpa ran errands while Grandma rested and organized some of her sewing supplies. For dinner we had the world’s best-tasting cold medicine: chicken noodle soup made with Woodcrest chicken. I feel better already.

    The chicken soup was really good – hopefully it was made from the rooster that was giving Julia and Megan a hard time!
