17 Oct Picking Peppers
Today we went to work at Thistle Whistle Farm.
The first thing we did when we arrived was to milk goats. Next we toured the farm and saw bees, strange plants that made your mouth numb, and over 60 species of hot pepper. Next we helped harvest. Some of the group picked tomatoes, long rows of diverse kinds of tomatoes with numerous heritage varieties. Other people picked peppers and others dug potatoes. Mark makes his living from his farming. Here’s a newspaper article about him that Dev wrote a few years ago.
