It is Monday evening and I am finally updating my online store for the week. I am sorry for being so tardy, but today was BUSY. Livie and I both had eye exams and I am now at that point in my life where I need bifocals. I am not excited… especially when you factor in the cost of the new lenses. Better news Livie’s eyes are in great shape for the first day of Kindergarten. Autie spent the afternoon with Grandma Betty and she enjoyed being the only one with Grandma.
Yesterday I had a wonderful thing happen, I met the executive chef of an upscale restaurant in Lincoln and he was in love with MY tomatoes! That is wonderful news. I am estatic at the possibility of selling to them. Today I also visited with the cook at a local café who will feature my produce in her weekly menu in the weeks to come. She is one of two people today to take advantage of my fresh from the farm Mondays where I offer everyone a chance to buy Sunday leftovers at significantly reduced prices. For those who love fresh produce but would like to save some money, you need to stop by on Mondays.
This week I have plenty of peppers, eggplant, TOMATOES, sweet corn, peaches and crabapples. I will double check on Wednesday but at the moment I will not have green beans, but more are coming.
In the weeks to come I will have several types of watermelon, honey dew and Crenshaw melons.
The heat has set in and it has been difficult to get very much done. Before I plant much it really does need to cool down. We are also in desperate need of rain and once again ask each of you to take a moment and offer a silent prayer. The lack of rain is becoming serious and the high temps are making the situation worse. Our pastures are running out of grass and the ponds and creeks and each are also starting to dry up. Our corn crop is already gone and our soybeans are in trouble. We have only out up a third of the hay that will be needed this fall and winter and that is scary. Please pray for rain and pray for all farmers to receive the needed rain.
My girls are busy enjoying their trampoline. The temps are a little cooler and the sun has gone down enough to offer a little relief. From my computer I can watch them play and I love watching them when they do not realize I am there. My girls are crazy and a lot of fun to watch.The store will remain open until 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Ordering is easy all you need to do is go to http://lecuyergardens.locallygrown.net. I will deliver to your home an office on Thursday. v
