July was a busy month and it went by in a flash. We traveled, experienced new things, hosted our fifth annual chili cook-off, delivered two great farm bags, and had an amazing fair week and that was just in our spare time! I found myself reaching for my iPhone more this month than usual for picture taking. In all of the busyness, I at least always had it at the ready. As we move into August, I plan to capture the month more predominantly with the 'big camera.' I found there to be a lot of repetition in my photographs, those that I chose for the PAD and the others that I took. You may notice that four of the days here involved berries. If it gives you an inclination of our berry harvest this year, I think that I have berry shots from every day! I had grand intentions of jam making, which I did about two dozen jars of, but they have come so fast that I am flash freezing everything so that I can more thoughtfully process them after the fervor of summer harvest ends. Here are a few glimpses of our July.
