Farm Update

This time of year it seems hard to keep up with everything, but that's a good problem to have. Although we had a delayed spring (for the garden, at least), it has been a very productive season. Here's a photo Bill took of our booth at the farmers' market this morning:

Here are a few things that happened this week:

  • Used the dehydrator to preserve some herbs and shiitake mushrooms
  • Experimented with transplanting lambsquarters - it looks like it worked
  • Had my first zinnia's blossom
  • The Japanese beetles are back!
  • Had my first laundry fail - had an unexpected (but much needed) thunderstorm
  • Made the usual deliveries
  • Got our first Air BnB reservations
  • Had our farm stay winner stay in the farmhouse with her family
  • Learned that the air conditioner at the farmhouse isn't working (have the technician scheduled for Monday)
  • Discovered that Igloo coolers can be repaired (our old one had a broken latch, broken hinge, and broken handle). Ordered the parts, easily installed them (once I found the right bit to fit the screws), and kept the cooler out of landfill. Kudos to them for offering replacement parts.
  • Put the final touches on a writing project.

Have a great week!
