September 8th and 11th

A Celebration of Labor!

(or lack thereof for a few days)

and our 13th Wedding Anniversary!

We took our annual wedding anniversary camping/canoe trip this past weekend and could not have picked a better weekend!!!  It was hot and humid, but being on the pond made it oh so wonderful. I floated around on my raft while Simon swam alongside and Zach jumped off rocks into the deep water. 

Tomorrow as I harvest for pick up, in the heat of the morning, I will try and remember the cool of the water.  The farm is hot and dry right now and I am looking forward to a little rain this week.  The air still feels like summer, but the crops are definitely showing signs of fall.  The cukes and zukes have slowed to a near stop and the brightly colored winter squash are starting to peak out form their fading leaves.  It's hard to believe we are in the 2nd week of September, but here we are.  Take a moment to enjoy the last flavors of summer...juicy tomatoes and sweet peppers for, even though it seems impossible in this crazy heat, the first frost is lurking right around the corner.
 
This week's bounty: lettuce, beans, onions, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, beets, potato, corn
 
Farmer's Camping Table:
  *smoked salmon, sliced cukes, tomatoes and crackers
  *The Sausage Kitchen's smoked sausage, fresh tomato, onion and summer squash
