Tomatoes!

Finally! Tomatoes! Dad, Robin and Amber got all medieval on the tomato patch and we finally had a big display of tomatoes in the stand all day.

cold summer & fall, slow business

It's been one of the toughest summers we've had in a long time. Just way to cold, lots of things not producing well. Very little summer squash, cucumbers and tomatoes are just finally starting to ripen, almost 2 months of lost sales late.

It has been a good watermelon and sweet corn year though. Some of the biggest cobs we've seen in decades. The grapes are doing well also. Although it won't come out ahead at least something is doing well.

The weird part is how slow the traffic is. I'd guess there's 20% less tires on the road just in front of our stand. And people coming in are spending less too.

Despite it all, there's still nothing I'd rather do. Keep on keepin' on.

the day before

Another fairly cool day. Still few tomatoes. Fragments of thought skittering around in everyone's head at the stand it seemed. Dad and I couldn't do math and our customers were behaving stranger than unusual. A lovely day, all-in-all. Be well.

Tuesday overcast

Nice cool morning. Lots of melons to pick today. Still waiting on the 'maters. Have a good'n.
