Bringing Home the Summer CSA Harvest week 7

Hello friends & family of the Millsap Farm! It was quite the week here at the farm from a farmhand perspective, which could be summarized in three words: tomatoes, onions, and rain! Lots and lots of rain! As you probably know (or imagine) there was still a lot of productive indoor projects undertaken despite the rain; such as harvesting tons of tomatoes, organizing and sorting mountains of onions, & of course many other necessary maintenance activities of living greenhouses I’m still unfamiliar to. I always enjoy when I am assigned a task that sheds light on a different aspect of the farm previously unknown to me, which seems to happen every other day. It’s like an onion! Every week I am able to peel another layer off and understand a bit more of the Millsap Farm and the adventures that go on here. I’m not sure if the middle layers of an onion are any better than the outer layers, but that’s the best veggie analogy I’ve got. Seriously though, the Millsaps (the family) have built and shaped the farm activities for the community, which is all of you. So I thank you for being awesome and supportive to the Millsap Farm and family, which has provided me an exceptional summer season thus far. Cheers! -Lucas, Summer Intern
