So, what do farmer's do when it is suppose to be 80 degrees and we've got a cooler worth of veggies to pick? We start at 5:30...This is Lauren, picking carrots, with help from "Porchelle" aka "Little Piglet," the newborn kitten she rescued...
After surviving the heat of the afternoon, we start picking again. This is Dan, digging potatoes, at 8:30 at night. Thank goodness for 15 hours of daylight in July!
And I am also happy, happy, happy to report that the weather has cooled down nicely for market day today. Still sunny and beautiful, but looks like we are going to have our more normal "high 60s" weather today. Which is great, because all those veggies we picked early and late do not like sitting around at market day in 80 degree weather!
We have a great selection today so check out the list...
