Wow, I am a terrible blogger. One of my goals for 2013 was to try to write at least twice a week. I haven't written a word in 5 months!
So here we are, at the end of August. I glorious time it was, too. Ethan was home all summer and was busy as can be. He and his dad built a greenhouse and he sold vegetables at the farmer's markets all summer. It was an interesting endeavor. We still have tons of tomatoes, squash and cucumbers. I need to figure out what to do with all of it. I don't know if Ethan is going to come home from school and go to a few more markets or not.
He didn't do it all on his own, though. He had a lot of help. Steve was really excited about the whole thing. They traveled to Indiana, Michigan and other places to look at other greenhouses. They've talked to other people, emailed, and facebooked. Several of the local farm market owners helped Ethan with advice, ideas, etc.
He went to State of the Plate in Champaign County. He was very excited about that evening as he was introduced as the youngest producer at the market. At the end of the season, he was asked to be on the board at the Mechanicsburg market. I would say that is quite a compliment.
Baylor wasn't home all summer, but get home at the end of the fair. He got to spend some time out there with his friends, which was great. In his few short weeks home, he got to visit with his buddies, spent a lot of time with his girlfriend and I think he had a really great time.
I haven't seen much of Kelly, since she works 10 PM - 7 AM. By the time she is getting ready for work, I am winding down for the night. Oh, well.
I've been busy working, knitting and having fun. It was a wonderful summer. I'll try to be a better blogger and post more now that school has started again.
