Write two haiku about: Earth.
And, just like that, we're done with the harvest boxes. I am already looking forward to next Tuesday and its relative peace and relaxation.
The final day was not without complications, of course. Kat didn't get home from work until nearly 4 (box pickup is between 4:30 and 5:30) and Max was not super interested in napping. So I had to take him back up to Grandma, who was thankfully still available to watch him, and then borrow their car to bring the produce back to the house.
Because not only did Kat have our car, but Kat's dad had the truck. Squeezing 14 crates of produce into a Civic is not something I generally consider a good time.
Anyway, it all worked out in the end, as it always seems to on box day. So we're done with it for this year... and likely much longer than that.
It's still under discussion, but at this point I would say it's very likely that we won't be doing the box program next year. Probably not the year after that either, and quite possibly never again. It's just an incredible amount of work and the return doesn't really measure up. So we're going to try doing things a little differently next year and we'll go from there.
I am very much looking forward to the experiment.
Speaking of things I'm anticipating, we're now one month away from Max's second birthday. Hard to imagine.
Spinning and spinning,
Like a child trying to look
Everywhere at once
