This week's farm news:

Today is a special day for our family... We are celebrating Olivia Fern's first birthday as well as our 11th wedding anniversary! To celebrate we're planning a short camping trip. Since our family size has increased over the years, our two-person backpacking tent is no longer adequate for all of us. So, we splurged and purchased a family sized tent and are going to spend a few days next week camping with the kiddos. It should be an adventure.

We're excited to be giving you peanuts in your baskets again this year! We gave them for the first time two years ago but last year the rodents and deer managed to eat all of them. (How thoughtful.) Fortunately, we managed to save enough of last year's crop to continue our seed supply. We originally started with just a handful of seed peanuts, an heirloom variety called "Tennessee Red Valencia," several years ago and have been building our seed supply ever since. Now they're back and we hope you really enjoy this special treat!
