I can barely grasp it is the end of June. I planned to start cutting hay over the weekend, but the weather changed my mind on that. I would have had to bundle up cutting on Sunday because it certainly wasn’t a warm day. I think we are so thankful […]

Wow — summer has arrived in a big way! We went from sweatshirts on Saturday to as little outerwear as possible on Sunday. We shall not complain — we need this! It is amazing how much growth we have seen in all our plots over the weekend. Now, as usually […]
