dry bean harvest part II

Some days, I love being able to run my little farm all by myself. I love the freedom, the quiet, and the tiny successes and failures that I don't have to share with anyone else, unless I want to.

Other days, I know I cannot farm alone. Today was one of those days. With an impending weeklong vacation and over 2,000 row feet of dry beans that were ready to pop, I had to get the harvest in before I could leave. Thanks to my superstar husband Jake and friend Jennie, we got it all done, and even had time for a summer picnic.
