Field and Farm Notes. A friend came for a few days and helped with two projects: he and Ken got the leaking roof off and a new roof on the shed where we store boxes for CSA and on line order boxes. This may sound small, but building projects are easily set aside when planting and harvesting are more pressing.
The big news is RAIN. Over an inch on Monday. Great news for all the fall crops
Our friend also helped harvest the rest of the shallots, Walla Walla onions and garlic. This is a job of bending and lifting. The aroma is GREAT! Nothing like fresh garlic -
And he helped Ken with transplanting. Some of the beautiful shots are from his smart phone. Thank you.

Our friend had not had umeboshi, a great Japanese condiment. So I steamed some green beans to al dente, and topped with umeboshi vinegar, sweet wine, tamari, sesame and toasted sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds. Tasty.
'Til Next Week, Judith
