This is the time of the year when the days just blend together with continuous watering, picking, preparing produce for market, or CSA shares, sun up, to sun down a constant flurry of activity here on the farm. I have been spending a good share of the days, in my own make shift steam room and sauna, as I have 3 canners going to preserve part of this years harvest. I should have the softest, most supple skin! The berry picking season was a good one, we are making plans for next year. The self serve produce table has been great success, with the only big problem being keeping the baskets full for a good selection for those who stop to shop. The Farmer is preparing the soil for the pumpkins, soon to be planted. The melons should be on this week, there are so many that I am sure the Farmers Son will be wheeling and dealing. The sweet corn has taken a couple of hits from the grasshoppers and worms. We are just chopping off the top part with the worm so don't be alarmed at headless corn. The fall baby goats should be here starting around  August 1. Should be plenty of goat milk this winter.  The honey will be ready to harvest in the next couple of weeks. The animals are spending the days going from shade tree to shade tree trying to keep cool. As I go to the field this morning, I will update what is available in the market this week. From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!!!
