My soon to be eight year old grandson, Aiden, spotted a large patch of Turtlehead on the way home from the feed store. Some were worse for the wear, but we managed to gather enough for a studio shot. The later half of July and the first weeks of August have been drought-like in the Northwoods, affecting both the gardens at Rauhallinen Farm, as well as the local wildflowers. Milkweed and Joe Pye Weed have suffered greatly this year. It has been a long time since I have had eight year old children and I seem to have forgotten how much an eight year old boy who is active all day can eat. I will be sorry to see him go home.
