They bought the plants as just a root. The farm itself has only been there for about 6 months, if I remember correctly, so these plants are looking great.

After a quick break, Yael went through her incredible composting system with me. She is an excellent teacher and I learned so much from her in just 20 minutes. I fully plan on creating a worm bin and accepting her offer of giving me the worms to get started. I should have taken photos of their system, it's awesome, but it is taking way more space than I have to give, so she helped me understand how worm bins would be a great option for our garden.
I took 4 of these adorable little eggplants and a couple of shallots home with me. Sweet! I'll be eating them myself as Farmer D isn't so fond of eggplant.
I can't wait until next Monday, and already feel that the 4 weeks is going too fast. Maybe they will invite me back for another 4 week stretch, because I really love being there, and I am learning more than I even realize, while I am there.
