Summer is officially here, according to the calendar.
A rainbow, the ancient biblical sign of God’s promises and provident care for the earth, dips down to the potato field which is lovingly tended by Bishop Gary Gordon. But the rainbow is also a signal of the latest rainstorm. It is hard to photograph frost, but that is exactly what we had on June 27th and July 12th.
We can hope that the end of the rainbow produces a pot of Yukon Gold potatoes, as long as the frost stays away at least until mid-August. This is Farming in the North!
Abundant wildflowers grow fast and furious in our cool damp summer. Every cloud has a blessing!
