Hey y’all, how’s everyone’s thursday going? Farmer Tom has been working the fields day and night these past few weeks. Phew! It’s hard work getting the fields ready and planted. But he sure loves it!! In the past 24 hours we have noticed our pumpkin plants have peeked through the ground! It’s so cute, there own little grand entrance! A tad early this year, but nothing to worry about. They’ll be ready for picking by fall. We love watching our produce grow, its a beautiful sight. Wait till you see what hes got planted! Jacks, peanuts, turks turbans, wolfs, cinderellas, assorted gourds/squashes and much more! My personal favorite are the turks turbans. They are colorful, whimsical and almost resemble a mushroom by its shape. Not only are they great for cooking, but they make for beautiful front porch fall decor. Stacking them on top of cinderella pumpkins is such a fun thing to do and we absolutely love it!
Watching nature take place and watching our produce grow is an amazing thing. Such a fun time for our family.
Speaking of family we have 2 new additions to our family farm. Mason and Parker. Mason was the 1st baby to be born in Onondaga County for 2017 and made the news for his unique arrival. His cousin Parker was born about 5 weeks later and she is the very first granddaughter to be born into the family. Actually she is the first “great” granddaughter to be born into both sides of the family as well. As you can see the family is expanding and my twin nephews Logan and Landon now have cousins to play with.
We are a family farm and with the years passing by its exciting to not only see the changes with our family and farm, but to see them both expand is a wonderful thing. Come see the family and farm expansion this fall 2017!
