Getting the farm ready for an event like this is always a little bit scary for me. I enjoy people seeing my gardens from a distance or through this blog where I can pick and choose what I want to show. Letting people in my gardens though is like opening up and putting all of my world on display...good and bad, success and failure. And there is rarely a time that I can walk through these fields and not see success and failure side by side.
The good thing though about having this potluck so early in the year is that weeds have only overtaken a few rows in the garden by now. Bugs have only done a little bit of damage so far. And today anyway, the majority of what I see when I walk through the fields looks spectacular. We'll see what the next two weeks bring.
