Hello All,

Another nice week. It was humid but we survived, and nice the other days. Seems good to be a lot less humid now. Have been enjoying the fresh veggies. Always nice to eat my weight in fresh cucumbers. Oh boy! The farm stands are open. I have been going to Healds' Farm, has lots to offer. The corn will be ready by Aug. 10. Cannot wait. Hope you all enjoy some, too.
