Leeks surrounded by their own moat

At least someone is enjoying all this mud
The pigs are thoroughly enjoying all the rain we've had this week. (7.81 inches for the week measured at the weather station at nearby Ecovillage at Ithaca).
As you can see, the crops are mostly surrounded by water so no mechanical harvesting for a few days. We harvested and lugged by hand crates of tomatoes, potatoes, corn, soybeans (for edamame), leeks, onions, tomatillos and some flowers for our "market" at Felicia's Atomic Lounge this evening for happy hour (5-7). Since we're delivering produce to them anyway (for some of their locavore drinks and toppings for their pizzas) we get to hang out with our friends and sell a little bit of our produce along the way.
