This week's farm news:

What amazing weather we're having. I can hardly believe it's July. I'm sitting on the deck right now and almost have a chill. Wow. The rain this week was something else. Several intense storms rolled through the farm, leaving the streams and creeks high and, at times, raging. But no damage, thankfully.

Let's see... This week in the garden Jesse & Hannah caged and staked the late tomatoes. Eric had a tiny window of time in the garden to get some tractor cultivation accomplished. Otherwise, we kind of had to stay out of the mud and watch the rain come down.

And I want to remind all of you CSA shareholders that next Sunday, July 21 (from 1-6), will be our CSA potluck (& swimming party) here on the farm. We'll give a little tour of the gardens, visit the chickens & livestock, and this year, Jesse and Hannah are eager to show off the beginnings of their quaint little homestead. For more info, pick up a flyer from our market table! We hope to see you here!
