The TOMATO FAIRY finally arrived and gave the plants a splash of red color and now we are finally picking tomatoes fresh from the vine! We have been a jump ahead of the heat and the bugs, so we should have a pretty good crop this year. We are also harvesting some of our honey, so there will be wildflower honey this week available in the market. Our days are spent trying to keep the crops and the animals watered. Rocky made a mister for the cows that he stretches out in the pasture. They all line up side by side basking in the cooling mist as it sprays from the pipe. I have been known to take a spot in between the bovines and enjoy a moment or two of refreshment. If you drive by and see a cow, a cow, a calf, a lawn chair, and another cow lined up with faces turned to the sky, tucked between two tall oak trees, you will know what is happening in the pasture. The blackeyed peas are making a good showing, we will have the u-pick for several weeks, as we staggered the planting. We still have plenty of squash, potatoes, onions, eggplant, peppers, okra, as well as blackberries and some peaches. Again our market hours are Thurs. and Friday, noon until 5:00pm. , and Saturday 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support
