The upside of August, of course, is the arrival of the deep summer fruits - tomatoes, eggplants, melons. Those, of course, have all been a bit late due to the cool and wet early on (see above), but they're starting to roll in. We had three whole cantaloupes at market on Saturday, and there are a lot on the plants, so we expect to have them in force soon.
(And soon, we'll make some time for an afternoon at the lake or a long bike ride or a little dinner party, and then we'll love farming again.) Fall will be upon us before we know it, and we'll be wishing for a few more weeks of August to get done everything we want to do.
