tops & bottoms
The harvest yesterday was all root vegetables or “bottoms” as my family calls them.
When my kids were little, they were tickled by Tops & Bottoms by Janet Stevens–we read our well-worn copy over and over. In this clever trickster tale, an industrious laborer rabbit and a lazy landowner bear agree to “split” the harvest, with the rabbit on the winning end until the bear realizes he needs to do his own farm work.
Tomorrow it’ll be time to harvest some “tops”–lettuce, fennel fronds and rhubarb.
