This week's farm news:

Well, y'all, we apologize but our melon crop is pretty sporadic this year. It's a gorgeous patch and was tended meticulously, but the melons are ripening in fits and spurts. We don't quite know why, but it's one of those humbling farming moments where we feel like we did everything perfectly just to be left pining for a bountiful harvest... So we're left to dole them out over the weeks! But we'll do our best to make sure everybody gets some - precious treat that they are. We hope you understand...

Otherwise, this week we had ample rain. Those drought worries are fading from our memory now, thank heavens! I spent lots of time with our milk cow, Lilly, trying my best to become a better milker and we started some more trays of fall crops this week. All in all, another busy week on the farm!
