Hello All,

It's been a while since our last update, but we've mainly been trying to beat the heat and keep the plants alive! We've missed the last few weeks of market due to the fact that our CSA baskets have used most of our produce in addition to Olivia's raid on the garden!! She finally figured out that a delicious array of vegetables were sitting only few feet away on the opposite side of the fence... She pretty much helped her self to anything and everything in the garden. Everything has turned out fine, but we just haven't had the surplus of vegetables we normally do. Mark will be at Market this Saturday however with lots of wonderful veggies!

We have had a surplus of cucumbers however... so we've been doing some good ol'fashion picklin!

We tasted the pickles the other day and they're great! It was surprisingly not very difficult to do.

We've also had a few little surprises pop up on the farm...

New baby silkies! So cute...

And here are a few pictures that our neighbor and photographer, Lynn, took of the farm a week or two ago:

And Ms. Diva herself was featured in Creative Loafing...

She's been in a music video, wedding video, on Fox-5, painted, sketched, photographed... what's next??? She needs an agent.

Hope you are all doing well and staying cool out there!

Take Care,

4th of July Peachapalooza!

Hello All,

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! We had a great time at the East Lake Farmer's Market Peachapalooza cook off! The market was filled with vendors, patrons, live music, and lots of peach dishes. We had a great time sampling the food and seeing old and new customers.

Once again, we brought lots and lots of tomatoes....

And we SOLD OUT again

Also, our watermelons have started to come in. We're very eager to eat one...

Thanks to everyone that came out to market this weekend! Happy fourth!
