Over the weekend we received another blessing from heaven.  A substantial storm dumped nearly 2 inches nudging a wee bit off the rainfall deficit that stands at ~8″  Justin rolled out the barrels catching as much rain as we could.   The rainy season window is closing fast and we are praying for another “Miracle March” before the long hot summer and fall months.

I can’t thanks those enough who have joined us in our praying for rain.   Also, a big thank you to those of you who braved the downpour on Sunday to support our “Front Porch Farm Stand.”   Pleasure meeting all the new faces!  Oh, and I know, y’all been inquiring about soil and more seedlings.  We are working on that, in between a ton of other stuff.  Hopefully we can get the extra space we need to expand this little homestead operation.

God willing, it won’t be the garden that will be getting a growth spurt this summer!

Swiss Chard!  I have so much to write about with all that’s going on.   More soon….
