No Farm Romance in August

Posted on August 5th, 2019 by Reuben DeMaster

We are in the Dog Days of August.  The work is relentless, the days are long and hot and the vegetables have to be picked every day, by the bin, by the truckload.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to have an abundance - plenty of amazing vegetables for our members. But these are the days that are not romantic but rather they test the character of the farmer and his crew each season.  To get through you will need diligence, perseverance, to dig down deep to access your reserves, to mentally brace yourself each day, knowing that in a few weeks the seasons will change again.  

I hope you enjoyed the beautiful weekend.  We had a very nice Flower Tour Event on Saturday evening.  So, I guess you could say there still is romance on the farm, even in August.
