This week's harvest: lettuce, carrots, radishes, zucchini, parsley, basil, chard, turnips, beets, collards.

Today we celebrated our daughter's sixth birthday. We had a wonderful farm birthday party complete with a trailer ride out to the swimming hole and homemade ice cream made from our own milk and sorbet from our own strawberries. We know it is Bea's birthday time at the farm when... humming birds visit our bee balm, our raspberries are ripe, onions are looking good and almost ready to harvest, the garlic is ready to be harvested and cured, green beans are coming along as are the tomatoes. Afternoon thundershowers cool off the hot days. And any day now she should start hearing the cicadas.

Happy Birthday Beatrice! Farm girl extraordinaire!
