What a perfect day…

So the sun is shining yet it is not 120 degrees, the sky is blue, the fields are green and the mountains are gorgeous.
What more could a farmer ask for?  Well sleep would be nice.  I have a love/hate relationship with July.  Love all the crops that are coming out of the ground, especially all the beautiful, beautiful garlic.  But keeping up with the harvest, the weeds, the watering, the bugs and the fertilizing seems to need more hours than a day AND night allows.  And every year I seem to forget how crazy it is.  I think it’s like childbird – you don’t remember the horrible pain you just look at this beautiful thing you produced (or all the beautiful produce).  Well, at least with farming, you could at least eat what you produce!

And since I’ve still got things to pick this morning, and garlic to dig before I head off the market, I going to post a beautiful picture and then get right into the important stuff…what is coming to market TODAY!
