Pretend I posted this on Day One

Day one: Saturday December 19th

Everyone arrived at around 8:40ish, which was great and surprisingly no one got lost. There was a lot of carpooling and everyone parked their cars by the stables, close to where we were camping out and out of the way of the farming equipment.

Once everyone arrived I, Rachel, gave an in depth tour of the farm, which included meeting all the workers, learning why we plant things where we plant them, and tasting a few strange morsels like assorted edible flowers and little Clementines.

Lunch was made, grumpily enough, by Redland Subs. Grumpy only because we didn’t call ahead with out orders, but we all learned that even in a bad mood, they make a MEEEAN sandwich. (You should all try their pizzas too–they deliver)

We all had a wondrous time putting up tents and such. We ended up only using two giant tents: one for the boys and one for the girls.

A few people went off to pull weeds, which was an experience. The rest of us started setting up for Farm Day on Sunday. We walked the neighborhood handing out flyers inviting people to come the next day.

That night we decided to chop up a bunch of fresh veggies–Eggplant, Carrots, Onions, Garlic, Corn, and Bell Peppers–and roast them over the campfire, since it was a chili night.
