The stand will be open on Wednesday this week to accommodate people who are here for the holiday.

Things here are on the farm are still moving along pretty well. Most of the backlog work has been done, with a few small exceptions. There is still quite a bit to do, and I often wish there were 4 more hours in the day, but I’ll deal with it like always.

There’s not much news to report here. The weather, despite the rain of late,has actually been very well behaved. The temp swings, like the one predicted for over the weekend are a bit much, along with the other morning being 38F (cold enough to frost, though thankfully it didn’t), And it’s confirmed that the crows did pretty much wipe out the first planting of sweet corn.

Most crops are coming right along. I have a good bit more, things like lettuce, to still put in the ground, but this is normal.

There is sad news from the coop. A chicken was discovered on Monday afternoon that had suffered a catastrophic health event. She was immediately put down to stop her suffering.

The rest of the ladies are doing well, though they don’t much care for the rain. Egg production is in full-swing, with the vast majority of eggs falling into the large size category.

For those who love jam, the Strawberry-Rhubarb has temporarily sold out. I will be making a bit more, but currently have no idea when I will be able to get to it.

Please make note of the stand hours for this week, and be sure to check the What’s Available page for the latest info.

I guess that’s about it for this update. Hope to see you all at the farm soon. Have a great week.
