Plumfest 2011!

Holy plums. Well, holy produce is more accurate, but plums are on my mind. The farm we’ve been working on has a pretty awesome orchard, and the yellow plums are falling off the tree. Dan is too busy to pick them, so we’ve been going nuts. Plus, Jennifer came up today and brought her lovely dehydrator with her. So not only is Dan feeding us for the summer, he’s feeding us for the winter as well! Plus, we’ve already canned 1 small load of beans, and will do a bigger load imminently. I love preserving. Sigh.

So that’s some of the happy news.   Other news?

On the ant front, they seem to be gone. We find one or two every day, but they seem pretty discombobulated and confused. They certainly aren’t like these ants.  We’ve bought drywall, and Marc and Adam helped us bring it into the house.  The room doesn’t stink quite as much anymore, and we’re slowly adapting to living in constant chaos.

On the farm front, we’ve got baby zucchinis on our plants, and lots of other things are competing for our own first harvest.  The arugula is in the running, as well as some kale.  Everything’s growing quickly with this latest hot spell, and we’re all enjoying the sunshine.

Other than that, things are normal as usual!  Except, of course, for the insane incredible unbelievable phosphorescence.  There’s not much else to say about that.  You either know what I’m talking about, or you don’t.  If you don’t, I recommend figuring it out.  It’s worth it.  It’s WAY worth it.
