Brother Ben has been doing his best to show off Alaska to Emily, but the weather is making it hard for him. Consequently they've spent some time cooped up, as there are some pictures on the camera which neither me nor Connie took...

THE U-Pick GARDEN will be closing August 20th. This will be the last year the garden will be open to the public. Next year I'll be operating as a CSA, supplying about 20 regular customers with weekly boxes. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years, but it's time to try something new.
