Soybeans anyone?

The farmers were finally able to plant the fields this week. It's been hot and dry and lovely for six days straight.
The fruit trees seem to be suffering a bit. I am not sure if it is the wet ground, a fungus, a bug, or maybe deer. It is probably a combination of things. Hopefully this can be solved, or we will be growing rhubarb instead. Rhubarb is easy.
J just celebrated her birthday too. Her sisters built her a horrendous cake. We got a bucket of fudge swirl ice cream to soften the appearance. It all tasted good.
