Farm PhotosSunflower 🌻 harvest ✔️. Not many photos, because we were racing to get it done before the rain. And it got done! Thank goodness for good help.It has been raining, so it’s been a minute since I’ve been to the farm. Came out today to find this cute little present from an anonymous friend! I guess this is a good prompt to let you all know that there’s an #evennewerfarmhand on the way sometime between now and Thanksgiving.Clean-out-the-fridge cornbread made with our own #heirloomgreencorn grits (milled pre-pandemic by @janiesmill ) was my dessert tonight.Spending the golden hour waiting for a truck. Truck drivers do a lot of waiting, and the fact that this guy is late is not his fault. Still kind of wish I had a better ETA so that I could make alternate plans. I feel bad texting “where are you now?” every half hour.Potato picking today, finally!Couldn’t ask for better weather for loading a truck. Got an email asking, “Can you load Friday?” and responded, “Sure!” And then the trucking company called late Wednesday to say, “We’ll have a truck there tomorrow.” 🧐 Quick-changed my work schedule and squeezed this one in after (office job) work and a doctor’s appointment (heyyy quick change of clothes in the shed! good thing the neighbor’s corn is still up!) and before my mom/babysitter needed to leave for dinner with an old friend. The #newfarmhand did have to help me put a couple of things away afterward and discovered that the auger hopper makes a cool turtle shell.So fresh and so clean! No farm party this year because of weeds and Covid, but we finally set aside half a day to free our equipment from the weeds.Sunflower update. The asters and goldenrod are starting to make their presence known, and I haven’t used the air conditioning in three days. Fall is on its way.
Our annual Farm Tour & Tea is cancelled for 2019 due to an extremely wet planting season (we expect that some things might not be planted by the last week in June). We hope to host a potluck party on the farm later in the season instead. As soon as we have set a date, we’ll let you know here and via social media.
