There is something amazing about doubt, and I think it's the fact that, many times, it's linked to nothing in reality. Garett and I have a favorite saying, and that is "Look at it. No! Look at it with your real eyes!" We stole this from comedian Loiue CK, who did a sketch about a passenger trying to stuff a gi-normous piece of luggage into a tiny overhead bin on an airplane. We've all seen it, the passenger crying out 'It'll fit! It fit last time!', without realizing that the circumstances (ie; the plane) may have changed.
I am delighted today to say that my farmvision today simply was the opposite of this scenario... My brain was screaming 'Nothing's growing and it's not gonna work!', only to arrive in the field today to see cabbage, spinach and cilantro triple the size of three days ago, and the beets, carrots, chard, and onions bright and happy. The sugar snap and shell peas are fighting the Oregon Giant Snows for the height trophy, and my tomatoes are busting a yellow flower or two on their brand new fruit sets! It just goes to show you that sometimes, even when doubt is great, the world's out there just waiting to prove you wrong. You just have to look at it with your real eyes. Here are the pics from the past two weeks:

|The reason it's so good is because they put a little love in it. Rachel and Mitty dancing in the kitchen during a Wonderland Farm recipe tasting.|

Jun 1: Epic Farm Day, Trellis Project
|So lucky to have Ryan for the trellising project. Here|
he's cross bracing the trellising end post with baling twine.
|Jesse stringing twine for trellising out eight varieties|
of heirloom tomatoes. Each plant can weigh up to fifty pounds
when fully grown and producing!
|Katie, Jessie and Rachel. Trelissing and fence repair extraordinaires. |
That was their title for the day.
|An All Red Potato plant. Notice the rosy interior coloration on the leaves.|
They're gonna be spectacular!
|Me and Megan's ridiculously great baby, Phoebe, givin' those peps a dirty look.|
|Mountain dove's nest, view from the deck.|
|Oh yeah, I took these men to a dangerous old- timey sawmill. And they loved it. Mitty's carrying a whole tree we used for trellising end posts.|
|Pocket musk melon anyone? So excited to see our Sivan Heirloom Melon making an appearance!|
|Rudy needed a place to sit after the end of Jessie's|
|Napa Cabbage... See the heart?!|
|Just so excited! Our first micro harvest! A few leaves|
of palm sized spinach leaves to saute for dinner.
It's not much, but it sure did taste sweet!
