Midsummer Madness

Sunshine, soil and water–

Time to get the hay cut, baled, gathered up and stacked in the barns…but of course, it’s also time to pick berries. The fruits of the earth abound, and here at Fool’s Gold Farm, we take pride in making good use of all the varied efforts the good earth offers in the way of edible fruits around Star Valley. We are called to collect at friends and neighbors’, we screech to a halt driving past loaded bushes on the Forest, we carry water to the edible wind breaks we have planted across the farm, we crawl along tipping up the crowded leaves in our berry patches. We celebrated the actual midsummer’s eve, on a full moon night, at the Star Valley Market, and no matter what, we can’t be too busy to miss out on a mid-season Farmers Market in Jackson Hole. Strawberries are bubbling away on the stove as this goes to press….and we look forward to seeing you tomorrow, bright and early, on the Town Square!
