It’s like Raaaiiiiinnnnnnn…

Rain, rain, go away. I've been wearing these a lot lately...

No, it’s not like rain on your wedding day (thanks for the most non/unironic song ever Alanis Morissette).  It is, however, like rain– all day, every day, any day.

This time last year, the farm was bursting with kale, collards, spinach, arugula, mucho asparagus, and lettuce.  You name it, we had it.  This year, the weather just hasn’t been on our side, the Farmers Almanac has committed multiple acts of perjury (no it isn’t 75 degrees and sunny), and the plants have surprisingly not taken well to the wet and cold weather.  Part of being a farmer is weathering the weather.

Despite Mother Nature’s best attempts to foil us farmers, however, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, sunflowers, potatoes, cucumbers, beans, peas, flowers, zucchini, squash, and honky melons are already in the ground.  We are weathering the storm here on the farm, but let’s hope for a strong summer and fall.
