In and out they go.  We’ve been having such a great run of WWOOF’ers this season, that I can’t sing their praises enough.  We just lost Annie D., she’s off to work on a hops farm somewhere in Pennsylvania; and we received Patrick and Jake, brothers from our great neighbor to the north Missouri.  It has been really hot and humid around these parts for the last few days, and we were blessed today with rain, enough to soak the ground and water in all of our crops.

Paul and I took advantage of te cooler weather and transplanted leeks from the hoop house.  We planted them in and among some tomato plants.  I planted about fifteen “Pumpkin on a Stick” plants in and among some bolting lettuce, we shall see.  The rain has since stopped and been replaced with sunshine, I’m so glad because tonight there will be a group of local musicians playing in the yard, while fireworks go off.  Should be a great time.
