The end of the month of May and most of the first two weeks of June was a period of time in which rain was absent. Nothing. The air was even dry. Mornings arrived without dew, without moisture. Yet the blueberries were growing in size and beginning to ripen. No rain, hot weather, and sunny skies make for early ripening blueberries - but small ones. My fears of a lost crop laying heavy on my nurturing farmer's heart.
Oh! How the days are filled with wonder! Farming, planting, weeding, tending, caring, and building.... Celebrating and rejoicing. It's been a full month around these acres.
