So the Rayven has flown the Farm possibly for the last time. I took her to the airport on Tuesday. Here she is at 12.
It's been 4 seasons that she has volunteered but next year she will be 17 and looking at colleges so this was probably her last long break with me. Things change. Hard to believe that it's this late in the season too. Already counting down and forward too. Hoping for the warm weather stuff to hurry up and the cool weather vegetables to hang on until the cool nights get here. Tomatoes hurry up, Celery and Brussels Sprouts hold on until it cools off. It's a crap shoot as usual with farming.
The chickens are finally raising their laying rate again. Maybe they'll earn their feed this week. In any case, there will be more eggs at the market. The Pole Beans are finally making their presence known. We're getting some different kinds of tomatoes finally. After a long wet spring, we got into our new field to plant. It's taken awhile but the Zebras and Violet Jaspers are getting their stripes, the Robesons are loaded, The Sweet 100's are turning red, we even got a couple of Chocolate Cherries today. Mortgage Lifters and Amish Paste have been here for awhile but mostly have been going into Salsa and our bellies. Saturday, we'll have a few Lemon Boys and some Black Krims also.
Saturday's going to be another hot one. We'll see you at the Market There's more good things to come. See you there
God's Blessings on you and yours,
Sam and Bill
