Well it was mid-way through the Corn and Pickle Festival when someone whispers in my ear, "she's in labor." That would be my youngest daughter Maria. As things ended up I spent the next three weeks in Lewiston waiting for Taylor Gene Rogers to enter the world.
Since I have been home all I have been able to do is play catch-up. We finished pickling cucumber season on Labor Day Monday. Gala Apples are available for U-Pick. Blackberries are finally ripening but production seems down this year due to the extra warm weather. Summer squash, eggplant, peppers and melons are all on now.
We wanted to press Cider on Thursday but Mother Nature slowed us down with a Beautiful Rain Storm. For which we are very thankful. So today Chan is prepping equipment and Brett is supposed to come over today and hopefully we will have cider by evening.
