Week 9, Swore Farms CSA 7/22/14

AAnnd we have another injury. At dusk, Kidlet #5 ran full tilt into a pitchfork that friends left on the grass. One tine passed between his tibia and fibula and tented out the back of his calf while another pierced his other foot, going in between the 2nd and 3rd little toe. His 10 year-old sister pulled the pitchfork out moments before we arrived. Minutes later, and we were on our way to the hospital. So if things come in threes, we should be done. Wendy's back, Kidlet#1's accident, and not Kidlet#5's pitchfork.

Anyway, back to this week's basket...
1/2 lb Snow peas, 1.3 lb sweet peas, 1 burpless, cucumber, 6 tomatoes, 1 egg plant, 6.5 lbs tomatoes, 1 candy onion, 8 carrots, 1 cauliflower, 2 beets, 4 lettuce, & 1/2 doz eggs.

Again, we were extremely blessed; kidlet#5 had no broken bones, no pierced arteries, no tendon damage. His doctor said, "I think you had divine hands guiding that tine into exactly the perfect place to be. A milometer in any direction and you'd have serious damage that required surgery. It's a miracle."
I think so too. Two weeks later, and he's totally fine--moving without pain unless you touch the wound itself.
