Heading into Week #9

logo
Good news first – we passed our Food Safety Audit with flying colors! The auditor couldn’t find anything – that was a great way to end our week!!
This week is a clean up kind of week – Paul is cleaning up the fields by cultivating – it’s one of his favorite jobs!  He rides the tractors and cleans up the weeds on the edges – it always looks nice when he is done!!
We have been trying to clean up the tomatoes – they did get  hit pretty hard with the hail!  They have marks on them and the ones that did get hit are rotting – so we are hoping to salvage those!!
Hail marks on tomatoes
 
Hail marks on Bell Peppers.
We are actually doing something this week that we have never done before but are giving it a try (it’s on my bucket list!!)  We are going to enter a bunch of our produce in the Erie County Fair!!!  Paul says not to get my hope up too high – but I am hoping to win at least one blue ribbon – we are going to the Fair next Sunday so I will let you know how we did!!!!
