I dropped by the farm this evening after working all day at my other job. I needed to bag up the beans laid out on one of my tarps in the barn, because I'll need the tarp to harvest one more bean bed first thing tomorrow morning. I arrived to find the farm hopping. Rowan, the manager of the Headwaters Incubator Program, was out late on the tractor, trying to get one last field disked and cover cropped. Several farmers had called in reinforcements to help haul in their vegetables as the sun dipped low.

|beans and beer--a relaxing end to a long day|
