Wowzes! Between hunting, visiting a truly incredible farm, and moving out...it's been busy. It doesn't seem right to be writing my last entry from a plush chair, fully air conditioned cozy house, but that's how this is going down. It's been quite an adventure, I hope you've had fun as well :)
Hold up, did you say hunting? Yeppers, shot me some good 'uns...on the camera. We went mushroom hunting with Ricky (Native American/Naturalist at Burge) on Monday and had a big time. He brought his mushroom recognition book and Erica and I would take turns looking those little guys up. Apparently, mushrooms are mysterious dudes; they can pop up one day be gone the next and show up across the field. On top of that they are super hard to recognize, which can be a problem if you want to go around eating wild mushrooms, which I don't recommend.
|You can make them turn blue with your finger, Smurferrific!|
|Old Man Mushroom, the only one we knew 100% what it was|
|I'm not edible, if you couldn't already tell by the way I look|
|We see you little mushrooms!|
We harvested noodle beans, peppers (there were even purple ones!), and green beans. There were other volunteers and a part-timer so it made harvesting a lot of fun. It was Joe's B-Day so Erin made a special lunch.

So there were lots of good times this last week. Reflection time has come now that my internship at Burge has come to an end. I think I'll miss writing the most, (but definitely not uploading the pics on here...takes...forever). Allergies+Outdoors=Bad. I learned so much about farming and I can't wait to see what my next opportunity will be. I've met some pretty amazing people who I will miss very much but feel lucky to know. Got a great tank top farmer tan, which I'm taking with me. And more than anything I feel happy, happy for the experience and very happy to be moving on to my next adventure. Cheers!
|Okay, it might not have anything to do with anything but isn't it pretty!|
Oh, and of course I'll miss you guys too ;)
