SO Much R&R

Market List; Slow Food Cayuga Duck Eggs, Purslane, Green Beans, Salsa, Pickles and we have a bit of lamb.

It has been a full week! Our Fab Wwoofers are still here, I am slowly acquiring a British accent because they are so delightful and entertaining.

The farm tour was Sunday. It was amazing!
I seriously don't know what I would have done without all the people who volunteered. Besides Roxy and Ruth, Dana-Rayven's mom, and Jade and Ember her other daughters, Bill's sister Pam was here too. We literally had a full house for 5 days, but the farm looked awesome when we were done!


We painted porches, weeded, finished projects, trimmed dogs, cleaned and when it was all done, we guided interested persons, served lemonade and ran people back and forth from the lake. About 1/3 of the people who came swam, but you better believe it, when the last guest came through, WE all jumped in too.
I really don't know how I would've managed without these girls. It seems simple, you run a Farm, people show up and you take them around. The reality is that you're in the middle of projects, which must be finished and cleaned up from, you're planting, and you can't stop for a party or you won't have anything to sell. Things get neglected while you are trying to live life and farm the farm so yes, it is a big deal. We love it though.

SO back to the Wwoofers, Roxy and Ruth. we've been Instagram-ing it up with all the new things that they are learning. They just embrace everything from weeding to putting up shade cloth and Super Wal Mart. We had to go for some paint and they were just amazed. It was awesome. They love the lake and have no problems letting everyone know it. They are not too cool for School. While we are quizzing them on British slang, they are learning to say things like " are you freaking kidding me" and "dang it". It's so fun. We are all dreading them leaving but fully supportive of their adventure. We are hoping they will stop back by on their way back from the around the world.

So as you know, it's been unbearably hot so we threw up the shade cloth. The girls were great, they didn't tell me until later that when We told them what we were doing, they didn't think that it could be done. But they threw in their best efforts and we got it done. 

Finished Shade Cloth

The shade cloth filters the light so that the plants and we are protected but yet the bees and other pollinators can get underneath. It's such a relief after the incredible heat. We got it up on Tuesday and we were able to work under it until after 2 p.m. 

And this wraps up the week here at Sunflower Savannah. We'll see you Saturday. 


God's Blessings on you and yours, 

Sam, Bill, Ruth and Roxy
