Uncle Rob Minter’s 49th birthday is a good chance for us to get back on track with our Postcard updates.

We’ve been busy clearing fields to plant peaches this winter. If all goes well, we’ll have fresh peaches to sell in three short years. Christmas trees are growing well thanks to some timely rainfall of late. Our fall vegetable crop is beginning to take shape. We fertilized the squash, beans and peas today. We’re learning a new form of farming (for us). We’ve bought a plastic mulch layer and have begun growing tomatoes on plastic mulch with drip irrigation. So far, so good. Work’s already well under way on Farm Heritage Days. It’ll be here soon!

Check back often. We’ll keep you posted.
