Ever thankful for rain, however...

The Farmer's WifeMarch 21, 2021

…enough is enough, for now!

We've had so much rain in the past week or so that it's nigh on impossible to get out into the field. The wheelbarrow is stuck in the mud somewhere, crops are set to burst and we may not manage to get out and harvest, and the shed is soaked through!

A crazy week, but not unusual. In our area we usually get big rain around March/April and then again in November. These rains set us up for the coming season. It will soon be sunny again for sure!

How our boxes may look this week.
This week it is hard to plan ahead for our boxes as we don't know what we can get out in the field to pick, and that will also have a flow on effect for the local farms too. This is what we're planning on...with the warning things may change suddenly!
