|Weather-vane atop Pennypack Farm Harvest House|
With temperatures in the mid-70s, low humidity, and clear skies, we decided that Saturday (August 24) would be a perfect opportunity to fulfill our obligation for the year.
When we arrived, the farmer asked us to join a group weeding the completely (hopelessly?) overgrown strawberry beds. Weeds and grasses had grown up so intimately with the strawberry plants that uprooting the weeds often uprooted the strawberries as well, but we did the best we could.
