M.........ore Organic Farm with Oscar and Camille

Springdale Organic Farm is nestled into the beautiful, rolling countryside of Wisconsin, about 50 miles northwest of Milwaukee. When Camille and Oscar joined us for our bi-weekly trip to work at the farm, they really enjoyed watching us weigh and bag the green beans (see above post), but they were most excited to see the crates of freshly picked lettuce arrive. Then they watched as the lettuce was washed, spun dry, and weighed and bagged. When we were back in Kohler, they posed with the box of fresh, organic vegetables and eggs. You can see some of the lettuce, scallions, summer squash, basil, carrots, cucumber, red and white onions, and kohlrabi. Our box of veggies also included green and yellow beans, more lettuce and zucchini. That means almost two weeks of great eating at our house! It also meant freezing some of the beans for next winter. What a great opportunity for us to "earn" some of the best vegetables in the world!

Camille and Oscar got a close up look at those yummy looking veggies! Not sure what kohlrabi is but maybe it's something especially in Kohler!
