Hi everyone,

Well, it appears that fall is early in Minnesota. The temps outside at 4:00ish yesterday were mid 60’s, clouds off and on, and a hint of a cool wind. The crops are changing again as Mother Nature plays her tricks.

Our basket was still filled with wonderful foods we will enjoy this next week. The tomatoes are gorgeous. Last week I made a wonderful sauce with all of the tomatoes I had in the house, plus some shredded zucchini. It will make a delightful sauce for lasagna.

Hi everyone,

The weather has been strange and we are actually looking at rock hard ground again. The  lack of rain is visible in our area. Not only on the farm, but in our yards and particularly in the areas where water conservation rules are in effect. In our community, we can not water lawns, unless you have a well. 

So, on the farm, they have to work extra hard to keep the crops growing. It is interesting because it has not been exceptionally warm, just very dry. Even the 2 inches of rain they received last week was not enough to push the growth forward.
