Summer days

radish harvest langwatersquadJuly & August on the farm usually means heavy harvest mornings and pickup trucks laden with full crates of fresh-picked veggies pulling in to at the barn every hour or so. Then long, sunny afternoons cultivating and hoeing to keep ahead of the weeds in a battle that only ends at first frost in October. We cross our fingers for regular, not-too-heavy but not-too-light rainstorms to keep our crops watered and growing vigorously. These are the days we dream about during the cold winters—fields full of food, perfect blue skies, and no end in sight.
