Trip to the farm

Our local organic gardeners club planned an outing
to Genesis Growers, in St. Anne, Illinois.

This is the farm for which I host a weekly CSA vegetable pickup.

1940's - 1950's era tractors,
each set up for a specific job to save set up time.

It was a beautiful evening to be there
and fascinating to listen to Vicki's stories
about life on the farm.

Hoop houses in distance extend the growing season.

A hot pepper plant in the hoop house.
She is playing with some South American stock which might,
if grown in the hoop house, be a perennial.

The long view of the lowering sun was beautiful.

We headed out just before the storm rolled in.
