I photographed at the Intervale Community Farm in Burlington last week when it was 96 degrees. They were picking green salad bowl lettuce, a baby lettuce variety, and weeding squash. Despite the high heat and humidity, the farmers, interns and volunteers were working determinedly and with good spirit!
