Locally Grown - Quality Farm Produce at Affordable Prices[ Member listing ]
13 Aug · Mon 2012
Today was one of those days when I was finally able to get caught up with a few personal things I needed to do. It has been very busy with picking and maintaining the crop. Our stands have been very busy and the vegetables have been excellent. We received about 6 tenths inches of rain overnight and throughout the day. It is still sprinkling now as I write this. Tomorrow morning I have an appointment and then I will spend the day picking and sorting. We strive diligently to provide our customers with the finest quility vegetables we can give them. One of us inspects every piece that we sell. I do not want to get so big that we are unable to provide such a service and product. It sounds like the weather will be nice tomorrow and Wednesday and then we might get some more rain. I wish these rains would have come last month! Nonetheless, we have been blessed with a great harvest. Stop into one of stands this week for some tasty sweet corn, melons and a large variety of wonderful, healthy, locally grown vegetables. May God bless you this upcoming week.

We have been working very hard at the Bountiful Blessings Farm in Hinckley, Illinois. Between our farm stands and picking, we have not had a lot of time to do anything. Andy, Peter and George have been picking corn and tomatoes, cabbage, cucumbers, zucchini, yellow and patty pan squash, peppers and much more. Today was the Hinckley Farmer's Market and the Kane County Flea Market. Our stands have been busy this past week. Many people are enjoying our melons and sweet corn. The heirloom tomatoes are coming on and the heirloom peppers are producing a bumper crop. We all hope you are having a great summer and are taking the opportunity to eat some great locally grown food! God bless!
Here is the grandkids enjoying some sweet corn!
