shade, power and color!

It's been a hot week here in the Midwest. Monday and Tuesday were over 100 degrees and humidity made it miserable! Today, however, we welcomed a cooler day. The farm was really busy this morning- everyone came out to enjoy the cool weather and just be together.
Our shade structure is complete! Lew has been working really hard over the past few weeks to build the frame and roof and help BPU install the electricity. Pretty soon we'll have our refrigeration room and wash stands which will make harvesting so much simpler!

One of the great benefits of electricity is a room with air conditioning. In the future, it will serve as tomato storage, but for now its really nice to go in and take a break from the hot heat!


Beautiful purple eggplants are in full swing which add a great color to our green farm.


Hawo's beautiful sunflowers remind us that we are in Kansas, after all.
