Yeeha! Twins

My niece Charley Jeane has given birth to 2 girls, Alex Jaye and Brena Rae. 2 months early but all seems well now. God bless them all.

Summer busy

... And some are not.

I am very busy these days. In about an hour we open for our second weekend of sales. I know it's Thursday but that's all the same to me.

Lemon cukes, summer squash, potatoes, sweet onions and green beans are on the menu for today's sales. Oh yeah, and a couple of golden sweet asian melons for a lucky few early customers; if I remember to stop and pick them.

Gotta go, hope y'all are doing well.

Blazing siesta

The vicious sun drove me into hiding amongst the shadows this afternoon. I actually managed to get a couple hours of sleep, which is a really nice addition to the 5-6 hours a night I've been getting.

The tomatoes are rocking my world and the Grant's Pass Irrigation district are doing a wonderful job of delivering plenty of water, thanks Grant Gustafson! We've got 1000 more tomato plants to put in as soon as the next cooling trend blows in; it's supposed to be 88 this weekend so probably then. And that will likely be our last planting for the year. Corn and cantaloupe are definitely done. So maybe next week some time we can throttle back to only 10 hours a day.

Broccoli is really heading up nice but we lost a lot of heads to the late water supply so we haven't bothered opening up for just that. Mostly just giving it away to friends and neighbors. Summer squash is also starting to produce well. On the down side we've just about lost a planting of corn which we couldn't get weeded in spring due to illness. Darn that Johnson's grass to heck anyways.

Y'all have a summer fun day.

God bless America

Happy 4th of July !!

This is a wonderful day of celebration in our country. Independence from tyranny, what an awesome gift the founding fathers imparted to the rest of us. Everybody grab a hot dog or slice of pie and get ready for the fireworks.
