Rockin' day at the stand

Had one of those top ten awesome closing hours. Was selling watermelon like crazy! All the people coming by were in a super mood, very happy with what they were buying and full of energy. Probably the cool weather and beautiful skies.

Speaking of skies, on the way home there was a huge, glorious rainbow circle broken by bands of virga hanging above our driveway. It made me feel so glad to have been on this earth long enough to see such a thing and to know enough to appreciate its beauty and rareness.

Intending to you that life gives you a moment to love the beauty and wonder surrounding you.

Stormy turnings

Want to apologies to any of my late day customers. Had to dive out early because of this big ugly storm that is blowing by. Some pretty gnarly rain and lightning drove me off to take care of jobs that had to be taken care of before being outside became too dangerous, slippery and wet.

Anyways, if the "H" stuff doesn't pound my crops and the rain doesn't split too many tomatoes and melons we'll be back in good stock during the next couple days. Thanks for your patience and keep up the good spirits.

Pizza & Root Beer

Wow! Almost a whole week since my last post. Been real busy picking corn and melons. Today was a slow day at the stand, too short on tomatoes. The cold spring and early summer has really cut into productivity.

Pizza & Root Beer for dinner, gonna crash early in hopes of having some energy for tasks tomorrow morning.

Wishing you happiness and comfort.

A lovely Sunday morn

Finally got a couple hours of good sleep this morning. Funny how much better everything is when you're not exhausted.

Our little dog, Sparky, got sick 2 days ago, throwing up blood no less. So we ran him to the vet who said he might have cut his insides on some grass he ate & we left him there overnight. He seems fine now but we're still touchy about him and have to struggle with a different routine for another day or two until we're sure he's ok. Plus we've got to give him antibiotics and another medicine for a couple weeks.

Corn harvest begins Monday so that'll be another routine change. Kinda weird after the long pre-harvest season it seems like starting this is actually winding down when actually we've still got a lot of picking ahead of us.

Wishing you all a day with small wonders and large joys.

slow day but tiring

Had a decent Saturday. Not terrible busy at the stand. Got our puppy back from the vet, (thanks for looking out for him, Ellen.) he's a bit subdued but we're all happier now, he had us so worried. Now for a little actual weekend relaxation. Everybody be well & happy.

TGIF business

Just about to head out to open up the stand. Way too little sleep last night. Cukes, squash, onions, taters, tomatoes and golden sweet melons all on deck this morning. Happy TGIF.

Weekend shadow

Preparing myself mentally for another couple days of being open this weekend. Corn will begin harvest Monday or so, 90% likelihood. We've harvested the first few golden sweet asian melons so those should be on base for this weekend.

Hope life is bringing you all many wonderful moments.
