From the Farm

For all that Minnesota suffers during its long and frigid winters, there is nothing more perfect than the typical Minnesota summer day. I am writing this post from my family farm in rural Minnesota. Although we are in great need of rain, it is hard not to celebrate the 75 degree temperature, the gentle breeze, and the clear blue sky. On breaks from my writing, I have helped with my sister's extensive vegetable gardens, shopped at a local farmer's market, and picked strawberries at the neighboring "pick-your-own" patch. There is no comparison between the strawberries shipped from California and the ones grown, picked, and eaten right here in Minnesota. I can hardly wait for the fresh tomatoes!
