Happy Fourth of July!

Can you believe a month of summer has already flown by?  Time seems to enter a stand-still zone when we’re at the farm since we continuously perform the same tasks over and over, week after week, but before we know it, we’re going to be prepping for harvesting!

It was a unanimous decision to beat the heat and begin work at 6am this morning: we watched the sunrise over the Natural Lands and listened to our rooster ring in Independence Day in his loud, gargled crow.  We worked furiously against the hungry mosquitoes and ever rising temperatures to get more mulch laid down, weeds pulled up, and Swiss chard planted and covered.

The farm is progressing very well; slowly, but surely, our squash, lettuce, and tomatoes are getting bigger, and our snap peas will start producing any day now!  How exciting!

Have a great Fourth, and stay cool!
