We are so happy and thankful to have rain again. We have gotten almost 2" of rain this week and although some ran off and down the hill, most of it has gone into the ground.
We harvested quite a few squash and a few sweet potatoes today. These crops look like they are going to be very good this year which will help to make up for some of the shortfall in other areas due to the dry weather. We grow over 40 different vegetable crops and I like to think of this as our crop insurance. Every year some crops do better than others, but the hope and plan is that they will all average out in the end. Although in some ways it is more work, I think growing a number of crops is a lot better than depending on one or two crops for your livelihood.
