We've really been enjoying the watermelons this year. 'Sugar Baby' is the little dark-green-skinned one, but a sweeter surprise was 'New Orchid', a yellow-fleshed variety. We'll grow more of those next year, and maybe try a few different ones too.
And if you haven't noticed, Beth is really pregnant!
December 3rd she will reap the ultimate harvest for what she's been growing all these months. It takes a whole lot of work to be a full-time farmer, but to do it while pregnant on top of it all...! She has been a wonderful apprentice, always going the extra mile to make sure things are done right, and keeping a positive attitude about everything while we're in the field in all weather- heat, rain, cold. Congratulate her next time you see her around pick-up for being the hardest-working pregnant lady around!
