Well is was a fine Memorial Day weekend.  Lot's of work around the house, got to catch the parade in Stroudsburg, and had my Grandson as a guest for the weekend (interesting having a 5 yr old around again). For dinner this evening we had a salad with my home grown (under lights) mesclun mix, a nice head of Black Seeded Simpson lettuce fresh from the garden, a bit of Swiss Chard and some very nice spinach greens that I started last November that over wintered in the garden.  For desert a very nice Rhubarb pie with Rhubarb that was picked at 5PM and the very last of last years raspberries.  I found a nice frozen package of last years berries in the freezer and couldn't resist adding to the pie (I donno how those raspberries slipped by me last January).  Oh, the pie was topped off with a nice helping of Moose Tracks Ice Cream.

Ah, sorry no photos......tsk tsk, I know...................................

Spring time in Pennsylvania!

Here is what I was doing a few weeks ago. Plow day at a farm in Mifflinville pa. A club event with a bunch of Cub Cadets and some John Deeres.

I'm riding a 35 year old Cub Cadet 1650 Garden Tractor. This tractor spent the winter plowing snow.

I was out in the veggie garden this evening. Just finished planting some pole green beans. Took a look at the raspberries and there it was, the first "almost" ripe berry of the season! Well I couldn't resist....mmmmm tasted great! If all goes well we should have one of the best raspberry harvests in years! The vanilla ice cream is waiting!

My wife and I took a trip to the Rodale Institute Organic  Farm in Kutztown Pa today.

http://rodaleinstitute.org/home

We did a 3 hour walking tour of the farm. Lot's of flower, vegetable, orchard and field exhibits. This is the premiere organic farm in the US.

A worthwhile stop if you are touring Pa.

This isn't me on the tractor!

BTW, The tractor in the above photo is rolling over "green manure" and planting soy beans at the same time. This is the organic farming method of no till.
