Rain, rain - we love you, but - go away!

I took a couple photos of inside the pick-up area of Blooming Glen this week. My favorite part is the Sharing Table. And the little notes Tricia and Tom write on the white board. This week, the message was, "7.25 inches of rain - think sunshine!"

I'd like to put some more photographs of the farm up here, but it's been raining tremendously here:

Hello everyone. We wanted to send an email to keep you all aware of what is happening at the farm. Last night's downpour brought us another 3.5 inches, bringing our total since Friday to 10.75 inches. As you can imagine, we are going to suffer some significant losses. It will be about a week before we see what the damages are, but initially things aren't looking good for our outdoor tomatoes and leeks, as well as the sweet peppers. Overall, lots of crops are drooping from way, way too much water and our head lettuce may have a few week gap until the next rotaion sizes up. Thankfully we have some tomatoes in a hoop house, but not nearly the quantities we had outside. Thank you all for your understanding as we do our best to bring you a great share each week.

Tricia and Tom

Our little pepper plants are drooping, too :o( Think sun, everyone!
