2014 Season, week 17

August 30, 2014

This week's harvest:
"Patty Pan" Summer Squash
Sweet Peppers
Various Hot Peppers
Melons - for those small shares that missed out last week...

This week's farm news:

Eric and I spent a fair bit of time on the road this week. We drove to Virginia (yes, Virginia!) to pick up a new bull. It's kind of a crazy thing to do - hauling a 2,000 pound animal in a trailer through the mountains! But, it was also my birthday, so Eric thought it would make a fun birthday road trip. We made a few stops along the way, Monticello being one, but once we got that bull loaded, we pointed the truck west and headed directly to the farm. It was about 10 1/2 hours of driving with a mere 5-minute re-fueling stop. That was a long day. But we made it and we were so relieved with the new bull, Goldie, was able to set his feet firmly on the farm! Crazy, fun times!!
