This year, I rotated the pumpkin patch to new ground and was similarly behind in clearing the weeds, subsoiling, plowing, and pickin' rocks from the untamed soil. And, as if there wasn't enough to do, we threw our annual summer party right around the deadline for planting. The party was a blast and we really enjoyed having people join us to celebrate the summer season.
This year's miracle came when two of my good friends from California flew out for the party and hung around a few days to help out on the farm. We had a great time and managed to prep all the new pumpkin and squash beds for planting...again in the nick of time.
We owe a huge "THANK YOU" to our friends Rob and Matt for making the trip and helping out on the farm.
