Summertime is almost here! We are so thankful for God's abundant blessings in every direction! Anyone who farms knows the difficulties that can arise when you grow produce for your family and others and/or raise meat for the freezer. Our heavenly Father is ever faithful to send rain when we need it, allow the gardens to produce to their fullest, keep the meat birds safe from a multitude of predators, as well as, protect the individuals who plant, pick and butcher meat birds. Praise to the LORD, the Almighty!
"Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honor and majesty. He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills. He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works. He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;... O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches." Psalm 104
Here at Reformation Farms, we have mainly been busy picking green beans and cucumbers, harvesting lettuce and rainbow chard, weeding and tending to the bee hive and meat birds. The tomatoes, wild blackberries, raspberries and peaches are just beginning to come in, and before we know it, the wild elderberries will be fruiting - waiting to be harvested and frozen for winter use.
After taking a few weeks off from the market, we are starting up again this week! In addition to non-GMO lettuce, arugula and herbs, we will also have non-GMO green beans and non-GMO cucumbers for sale when there is an over-abundance. Come and see us at the Collegedale Commons on Wednesdays from 4-6pm!
