Happy 4th of July!
Summer is in full swing here at the farm and there is a lot of activity in the fields. My buddy Lou (and my husband, Ricky) took me around this morning to make sure I got an update on everything that was going on on the farm (and to keep me from taking pictures of weeds…what can I say, I don’t get to spend much time in the fields)…come along- there’s lots going on!
