We started this week on the farm at Desert Roots Farm in Queen Creek, Az!

We were able to see almost every step of the process that Desert Roots Farm goes thru to produce their Local, Organic Vegetables for their CSA as well as the lucky customers at the Gilbert Farmers Market!
The tractor planting Kale Seed... Was amazing to see this! 

We saw every growing stage of many vegetables including Lettuces, Kale, Beets, Herbs, Broccoli, Turnips, Fennel, Carrots, Peas, Kohlrabi, Cabbage, Radishes, Arugula, Mizuna, Bok Choy, Spinich & More!

Bees hard at work... Was beautiful to see every step of the process!
