The 'drenched in sweat by 8 AM' days are here!  It seems impossible to drink enough water.  We are finally getting a little bit of much needed rain, but it's a double edged sword.  Great for the crops but it keeps the humidity up.  It feels like we are working in a sauna, but somewhere... read more »

The summer crops are coming in great right now.  The corn and melons should be ready within a few weeks as well as cucumbers as long as we can continue to keep the deer and raccoons out of them.  Farming would be so much easier if it weren't for the deer!
