Today’s weather was a surprise gift for us on the farm. In the midst of a drought partnered with scorching heat, God gifted us with an amazing day! When we left our home in McPherson to head to the farm, it was already a very humid 85 degrees. By the time we drove the 10 miles north to Johnstown, it was 74 degrees with a fabulous cool breeze! During the mostly cloudy day, we had light rains on and off. It was such a refreshing time.
We are beginning to truly gear up for the pumpkin patch season–trimming the tunnel, painting signs, etc. We also hauled off a tree that had fallen. There is still a good 9 feet of trunk standing. We are excited to see what Mark Childs, our chainsaw woodcarver, will do with it! Charis and Ben took their job very seriously. They are supposed to be taming the kittens, so that they will be friendly by October. The kids had a great time playing with the kittens on the hill.
We were so thankful for a reprieve from the heat! It was a joy to work around the farm, and it was a reminder that autumn really is just around the corner!!Grammy’s Pumpkin Patch at Johnstown Farm 2012
