It's been a minute since our last post. Actually it's been over four months...sorry about that. We've been a little busy.

|We got baby turkeys in June!|
|We harvested our wheat with the senior high camp!|
|And offered "wheat threshing" as a free choice, youth loved it!|
|Our summer farm intern, Claire, harvesting potatoes!|
|Pumpkins and watermelons we harvested with some of the McLellan Clan during Family Camp!|
|Canning has been a major job this season: cucumber pickles, tomato puree, pickled peppers, and sauerkraut!|
|Doug got us a bunny, Maisy, for my birthday in May.|
|She's done some growing this summer as well :)|
Mark your calendars for Camp Mitchell's first annual Celebrate the Harvest event. It will be held on Sunday, November 9th. We will have an afternoon of family friendly games and activities and will share a meal sourced from our very own Camp Mitchell Agricultural Project (CMAP) and other mountain-top farms! CMAP would have been growing for over a year and we'd love to show folks what we've been up to and share in the celebration of all our bountiful harvests!
Speaking of bountiful harvests, Doug and I have been growing our very own Knight fruit for over seven months now and it is due for harvest November 1st! We are taking bets on Baby Knight's sex, so get your wagers in before November! ;)
Growing on the mountain,
Doug and Jenny
