Fifteen of us pitched in and weeded a row of daylilies for exactly 30 minutes. As we pulled out weeds and chatted, the 30 minutes went by in a flash, but more than seven hours of weeding was accomplished. Lisha, who doesn’t hire help with her farm, was very appreciative.
She chatted with us while we enjoyed our picnic lunch among her daylilies and berries. Lisha had a rapt audience as she talked about growing daylilies and made suggestions about fertilizer and ways to keep pesky pests away.
Lisha has an amazing amount of energy and doesn’t relax even when the growing season is past. She spends her winters making baskets. Wide eyes and dropped jaws followed by oohs and aahs were the typical reaction to entering her basket shop.
