This is the last week of August and I can feel the change in the air. Yes, it’s still getting warm during the daytime, but the light is changing, with darkness coming earlier and earlier, and the temps at night are cooling. I wouldn’t exactly call it Fall yet, but I can feel it coming…

I took a walk around the farm today, first time in a while. I wanted to check out the corn to see if it’s close to being harvested. It’s sizing up slowly this year, we think due to the cool temps at night, and we’re all trying to be patient (I mean, what else can we do!!) but it’s hard….we all want to taste that sweet, juicy goodness we wait all year for!

I enjoyed walking through the fields of late season crops and was inspired by the the winter squash as it sizes up and begins to color…won’t be long before we’ll all be enjoying the sweet taste of roasted squash and hearty soups. But for now it’s pepper heaven, eggplant ecstasy, and zucchini madness!

Chris and Shannon have been hosting Chris’s parents this week, in their new home! Joe and Deb Overbaugh traveled from Pennsylvania to visit their family, and see all of the changes on the farm since Chris and Shannon took over. Although retired now, Deb
