The Cookeville Master Gardener's group made a field trip last week to Three Sisters Farm near Cookeville. The farm has a booth every Saturday at the Cookeville farmer's market. There really are three sisters who do the work of growing the vegetables, along with their mother.
Here is Ashley, welcoming the group to the farm:
Another unusual vegetable we saw was this red okra:
The farm also grows and sells flowers. The sunflowers were particularly spectacular when we visited.
Some of us went down to the barn to see some new baby goats. They were very sweet and tame, and you could pick them up and cuddle them and kiss their lips, and they didn't mind at all, even though both were billies.
After the tour we had watermelon, and chips and salsa, and we sat in the shade and talked. Trevor told me about his deer hunting plans for fall, and he climbed up into a deer stand in the backyard.
