It seems this season is determined to go down in history. First with record breaking floods- you may have noticed some of the commercial farms around us haven’t planted at all, others have soybeans that are only a few inches tall. No one in our area has a normal looking crop. All a result of the spring floods and our local heavy clay soil.

Then last week we experienced record cold temperatures. Nothing was killed here at the farm, but vegetables that normally grow inches per day have not grown at all for the better part of the week. And today it seems the weather is overcompensating with ridiculous heat and humidity. We have water going on the more sensitive crops so the heat should be a good thing.

So once again we are taking a short break in the harvest to give stuff a chance to catch up. Our next harvests will be Tuesday July 29th and Friday August 1st. Given another week to recover we should be back on track again and hope for smooth sailing for the rest of the season.

Once again I want to thank you all for your patience and understanding, we really appreciate it!

In the meantime here are some pics to show how it’s looking out there.
