Weekend Fun

We had a great workday at Loy Farms this weekend! Working at Loy Farms is always a great activity to relax but still have fun while taking a break from homework as the semester winds down. It’s amazing how beautiful fall is even though it’s a season of death.

We started out u-baring a recently used bed so it is now aerated for a new round of crops. For more information on u-baring, check out a previous post below.

After some hard work, it was hard to resist not enjoying the delicious crops Loy Farms has. Look at how big these purple cabbages are!

There’s also a vegetable called kohlrabi. Kohlrabi is related to cabbages and is common in German speaking countries. It can be eaten raw or cooked and taste similar to broccoli stems. Usually the outside layers are peeled off and kohlrabi can be served in curry, soups, steamed, made into fritters or roasted. Visit our “Food” page more kohlrabi recipes.
