This morning Matt and I saw something interesting through our large dining room picture window. It was a large Bald Eagle flying low over Pickerel Lake carrying a fish. The interesting thing was that the fish was a Northern Pike and looked larger than the eagle–the pike was over 2 feet long and weighed over 4 pounds (these are estimates, of course, but they are reliable estimates since we have seen many, many pike in this size range.) Apparently, the eagle had too hard a time with the pike and we did see it finally drop the fish.
The sweet corn we will be picking today is bi-color Mirai and white Mirai.
Today we will also have for sale peaches, Zestar, Earliblaze, Gravenstein, Wolf River and Summer Treat apples, a new patch of green beans and starting a new patch of yellow beans, acorn, buttercup, butternut, Heart-Of-Gold and spaghetti winter squash, watermelon, muskmelon, zucchini and yellow summer squash, pickling and slicing cucumbers, Newaygo Sweet Onions, SunSugar cherry tomatoes, Canning and slicing tomatoes, Little Red Tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, sweet green bell and Jalapeno peppers, yellow and orange Super-Sweet peppers, new red potatoes and new Yukon Gold potatoes!
