More onions! My wife said if she sees another onion, she is going to hit me! Onions were a good seller last year and we ran out, so this year we are planting more. Today, we planted more sets and seedlings. The look great! I am hoping for rain tonight and it looks promising. We got in from work and had pizza with our neighbors. It has been a long day. I am tired and so is Kim. Tomorrow we are going to the volunteer fire department's pancake breakfast and then it is back in th saddle again. I have tomatoes and peppers to transplant. There are a few cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli to transplant also. It seems to never end. It's off to bed for me! I'm pooped! Goodnight and God bless!

The last few days have been very busy at Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce. We have been planting like crazy; trying to get as much in before the upcoming rain. Thursday, I planted onions, beets, peas, arugula, spinach and other cool weather crops. My dad worked on an exhaust fan for the high tunnel. He also built another shelf on the seedling rack which was desperately needed. Most everything is doing well in the field, other than it is very, very dry. We really need rain! I guess it is supposed the rain this evening.
Today, I am going to be seeding and transplanting. I also have some things to plant in the field. Andy is coming out today to help, so we should be able to get a lot done. Yesterday, my wife and I planted onions almost all day long. Early in the morning we planted the last of the asparagus. It was my sister’s birthday yesterday, so we went out to eat with her. It was nice both my siblings and mom and dad were there. I’m not sure when the last time all of us were together. After lunch, we planted more onions. Last night, Kim and I went to see the “Three Stooges” with my sister and her family. It was very funny and had a good plot. Well its time for me to get out to the field. I hope all of you have a great weekend and may God richly bless you this weekend!
