on the farm

Some earthy moments of our first day on the farm...

you get a chance to ride in the farmer's big truck if you have to use the bathroom in a particular way
Owen picking asparagus

Audrey in the celery rows we planted

We were asked to come up and help do some planting. We planted celery and celery root. The boys each gave planting a try...Ethan said he didn't want "get dirty" (kind-of out of character - I think he was just more interested in playing dirt clots with the other kids rather than "get dirty" with his momma)
to And while we were there we were able to pick asparagus. Ethan ate more than he; Owen plated about 6 plants and then his 3 year old attention span kicked in; Audrey spent most of the planting time in the backpack but even got her hands in the dirt and ate the celery sprout she was given - including the dirt it was planted in.

When we finished planting we ate our picnic lunch in the fields and then picked our share of asparagus. Ethan ate more than his share before it even got to the basket. Owen didn't last long in the fields...he preferred his blanket and cars in the van. Audrey was content in her car seat but ready for a nap...she fell asleep on our way down the drive-way.

We are so excited about our time to pretend we are farmers even though this is what we feel like when we are done...
