It's hot. That about says it all. But the farm holds on and the first tomatoes were picked. Thankfully they are blight free. Potatoes keep popping up like small treasures and so do cucumbers. The carrots have been a nice success as well. The broccoli plants are almost four feet tall and more florets show up every day. There is even a volunteer tomato plant in the corner by the Swiss chard. School gets back in session very soon and so it is a very exciting time. While cleaning up the old garden a few future students even came through while touring the school to get their bearings. The new garden is somewhat ahead of us, but we'll bring the Weed Dragon and Farmer Tom with Wayne's tiller and we will get that plot back in shape in no time.
