This week on the farm.

The weekend weather was wonderful for picking.

The Canada Geese are heading south. While out in the orchard you can see and hear them as they start the journey.

The You Pick Pumpkins will start this weekend. We will continue with the Apples, Red Raspberries & Blackberries.

Unfortunately we had a light frost very early Sunday morning which impacted the squash, peppers and tomatoes. The plants may not produce much longer.

This year has been a challenge with the rain, cold temperatures and now an early frost.

But that is farming the biggest gamble in the world.
