Still Eclipsing

Market list;
Grass Fed LAMB, Tomatoes, Purslane, Tomatillos, Wood Sorrel, Bright Lights Swiss Chard,  Lemon Cucumbers, Green Beans, Kale

The Solar Eclipse event is still going on at the farm in an attempt to raise money for Vesterbrook Farm who has lost everything but the actual Farm due to Chemical drift from a conventional farm. There are still plenty of spaces left. Fifty Five Percent goes to the Brabos'. If it's a good turnout, we can do more.

Certified Naturally Grown put out a page for the farms that are in the path and we are in a Prime Location for the fullest effect. 

So we have a new Wwoofer this week. Deb arrived Wednesday evening. Sorry that there is no pictures, She arrived in the rain and today we had some issues with the pups that kept us busy. We'll have some next week. 

Lamb is back at the market probably for a long time to come. The new grazing on pastures from Slow Food are helping as is the rain which helps the fields grow. On the opposite side of this, there will not be as many tomatoes this week and probably not next week either. So many have cracked from the everyday rains that we have been getting and the cooler nights have caused some powdery mildew as well as slowed down the ripening process. Farming is such a balancing act. Just when you think you are home free something new gets thrown in... too much rain in August, really? 

87 degrees on Saturday, feeling more like August again instead of October.  Come prepared to shop and drink lemonade. 

God's Blessings on you and yours 


Sam, Bill and Deb-til Wednesday
