August 2016 Newsletter

From Helen: Summer is ending and a new school year has begun. I like the fall and what it brings, cooler weather, fall vegetables, and the anticipation of the things to come. As a child; a new school year meant a new beginning and as a young adult it meant going back to college to old friends and new classes; now as a much older adult, it means our busy month of October is almost here.  Speaking of new beginnings, we are about to start a new chapter for Legare Farms. We have purchased a bus and will soon have...

July Newsletter

July Newsletter 7/31/16 From Helen It's hot and miserable but it's the south so that's what we expect. I wouldn't want to live any where else but if I was a rich women, I'd have a mountain house for the summer months. I know the cooler weather is coming but not fast enough. We've had a rough week besides the heat, Thomas blew 5 tires on trailers hauling grain. There's never a good time to blow a tire but changing tires on the side of the road in this heat was no fun. On top of that July and August are...

March Newsletter

March has been a weird month as far as weather goes. We got really hot really early. Spring caught us by surprise. I never thought we would want rain again but it turned off dry. I heard someone say that the only time farmers aren't hoping for rain was when it was raining. That certainly wasn't true this past winter and we still have remnants from the big storm in October and many rainy days since. The wet fields delayed getting ready to plant the spring crops. Now we're playing catch up but hopefully everything will be planted on time....
