Rain Can Be Both Good And Bad

Rain, rain, rain...that pretty much describes the weather pattern here and at the farm.  I know from weeding and working in  my yard that rain equals mud and mud equals not a lot of work being done.  I imagine the farm to be the same way.  I  know that it is difficult to even get in the fields and then difficult for the horses to get good footing in the mud.  Not to mention all the weeds that seems to spring up while you are standing there.  But Andy isn't complaining because the crops are looking good and the rain saves him from running the irrigation pump...which saves on gas and that saves  money.

Looks like more green beans and tomatoes in the next few weeks. This week there are leeks in our boxes.  They are a little milder in flavor that onions but can be cook about the same way you cook onions.

Hope you made your reservation for Farm Day this weekend!  Hope to see you there!
