GAP Practices

This week has been a whirlwind. We have been planting non-stop and getting things ready for the market season. I am so blessed to have my wife, my dad and my nephew helping me. Dad is working on the preparation area where we wash and clean the vegetables before they go to the stands or the markets. We are working hard with our GAP practices. GAP stands for Good Agricultural Practices which are a collection of principles that apply for on-farm production and post-production processes, resulting in safe and healthy food and non-food agricultural products, while taking into account economical, social and environmental sustainability. We are very consciously working to ensure safety and quality of produce in the local food chain. It is our goal to maintain high standards when it comes to cleanliness and quality. 

Tomorrow we will be back in the field planting more seed. The cucumbers and zucchini squash are going in the ground tomorrow! I am going to plant some in peat pots and some will be direct seeded. I want to experiment to see which method is better. I think it will be the direct seeded method, but I am looking forward to the results of this little test. Unfortunately, I will not be able to be in worship tomorrow as this is crunch time for planting and we only have so many hours before the next rain. I pray that your Sabbath day is blessed; that your worship is true; and that God richly bless you in this upcoming week.
