A Hot, Hectic Summer

It's been a hot, hectic summer! After the drought was over, the rain brought us a decent crop of green beans and sugar snap peas. Farmer Larry experimented with some canning, but decided freezing was better in the long run. Most of the green beans went to a parish in Scranton and the local food pantry. 

We have two seniors from Lake-Lehman High School doing their Senior Projects on the farm. Beth has been very productive in the wool category, having washed, picked, carded, spun and dyed her very own skein of yarn. Congratulations, Beth!

Beth and her classmate Savanah have been a great help in the field as well, weeding and harvesting the potato crop, which we sent to Scranton and New York City.

A visit from family was a lot of fun. Joan met her namesake ewe, and the boys helped harvest some beans and peas. 

For the second year in a row, Misericordia University freshman came for a Day of Service as part of their orientation. They did a fantastic job of clearing out the field - and had some fun with the sheep!

Many thanks for all the prayers and support for our work. Send us your prayer intentions. We will continue to pray for each other.
