There's still sweet corn

I was able to escape once again for a couple days of leisure before the pumpkin harvest begins 
This weekend I'll be at the mill city market Saturday and the Mnpls market Sunday 
 Sweet corn, tomatoes, honey

We're on the down hill side of field melons, however, wow, the September melons are growing into the rafters. 
  The first photo is of all the pruning of branches we do this time of year in the tomatoes.  Lots of nice  heirlooms this week.
  Sweet corn, melons, tomatoes 
Weds 3-6pm at Mother Earth gardens,  Longfellow 
Saturday mill city farmers market 
Sunday Mnpls farmers market

Even more melons

Piel de sapo,  Petra negra, sunshine, sureness, Marie's choice, Marie Antoinette 
  Sweet corn and tomatoes too 
 Weds,  Mother Earth gardens, 3-6pm
 Saturday at mill city farmers market 
Pretty fair chance of Sunday at Mnpls farmers market 

This morning I was feeling this strange sense of optimism and positivity,  I realized it was because I'd been sampling melons for about a half hour 
  So if you need a psychological boost,  buy a melon.... buy two and give one to a friend!

Melons;  fortunately, we have such a good crop, that even with 20% loss from hail,  we'll still have a truck load of melons for the mill city market Saturday. 

 Sadly no ripe sweet corn this weekend.   

Plenty melons and tomatoes
