Long days, Long Nights wouldn't have it any other way

As much as I love summer it can certainly feel overwhelming at times.  Ideally everyday you will be very efficient getting everything checked off your list.  Life on the other hand moves irregardless of our carefully crafted plans.  Things pop up, go wrong or you simply make a mistake.  Plans to trellis all the peppers fall to the wayside as you deal with the encroaching weeds or a hungry pest showing up.  Some are familiar like the wood chucks(we're up to 6 trapped and released) and hornworms( I'll spare you the details).  While some are new like the blister beetles and cabbage aphids.  One thing is for sure optimism and flexibility are key and triage is a fact of farm life.

Some things that just can't be skipped are daily harvests of squash, cukes and sun golds.  Late night pickle processing sessions with dinner and planning and sowing seeds for the fall( I know a crazy thing to be thinking about in July). What can we say, you probably have to be a little bit off to be a farmer anyways but we love it.

The good news is we are offering a deal this week on squash and cucumbers.  Get 5 or more pounds of squash for 1 dollar off per pound and slicing cucumbers are buy 3 get 1.  As always send us your order by 8 am tomorrow for pick up out front in the shed after 2pm.
