The most wonderfUl time of the year
I love June. I love June for various reasons. First of all it's my birthday month. So that's very cool. Second, I like June because the weather is delightful. For lots of years we would sit at softball games and the weather was usually just gorgeous, not too windy and not very many bugs. And that's always a good thing. This morning while I was hoeing I noticed that the vines are really starting to grow. It's one thing when they pop out of the ground and just have a couple leaves it's another when they really start to vine. That means in a week or two we will see little flowers. It also smells really good out in the patch right now. I'm not sure if it's because I have a pasture right next-door or what but it smells just fresh and clean.
Thanks again to everybody that has stopped out at the patch to buy their fireworks! We really appreciate the support.
Holy Cow, It's go Time!
I see it's been a little while. I've been busy and we open today! Stop out sometime and check out the new store and all the awesome things inside! I'm so excited and relieved! Wow! Ok, I gotta get to work.

in the end it will be alright
Well it's been a long week. Where to start. We finally got the application for the fireworks license so we've been working on that the last couple days. It is a lot of work. There are many regulations and qualifications that need to be checked. I feel confident that will eventually get approved but it's just taking a long time. Because I've been working on this for the last month I've been neglecting the patch a little bit so I'll just hoed a few rows.
I recently started listening to podcasts. I have a few favorites that I always listen to you and one a couple of them are Girls talk ag and The Farmer and the City Girl. It keeps me entertained and gives me something to think about.
I also like to listen to The Dan Patrick Show which is a sports show.
So if you are bored come out and help me hoe. ( In my 18 years of having punkins, no one has ever taken me up on it 😜)
My name is Amy Solsma. I'm just a chick out standing in her field. I have lots of time to ponder while I hoe out weeds.
