Farming in the West….

For the record, I’m not a good farmer. As kids we would sell our farm grown corn door to door to our neighbors in Southern Utah and they were always super excited because our corn was so delicious. I believe my mother said that the cool desert mountain nights made the corn taste really great. Anyway, my father in law is a “famous” farmer though and the Los Angeles magazine just discovered him. http://www.lamag.com/digestblog/meet-calvin-lamborn-the-inventor-of-the-sugar-snap-pea/ My daughter will soon go to her 2nd summer camp with cousins at the family farm. My other 2 children are not old enough yet to qualify as labor so they have to wait. The summer camp consists of early rising to farm and take advantage of cooler temperatures followed by possible cliff diving in the Snake river in the afternoon led by the older experienced cousins. Money earned is earmarked for the college savings fund and a bit for some new school clothes.
