Jedilo left this past week. He had an opportunity to join his cousin
in the Boston area. He has been with us for 1 1/2 years. We are grateful
for all his contributions and he will be missed. Our children really
enjoyed playing with and working along side him. Jedilo, a Fulbright
scholar from Haiti, is a bright, well spoken, and dignified man. It was
a true pleasure to have him be with us.

Here is the market on Saturday at the farm with friend and customer
Anna Klein. Thank you to those who came out!

For Father’s Day today Benjamin and I built a puzzle together. I had

My daughter made me biscuits in the morning and we had a scrumptious
meal this evening with an amazing cheesecake made by Vicki. But the best
part is having my kids in my arms. To my dad and all the dads out there
who might be reading this, Happy Father’s Day!

We hope you have a great week!

Danny, Vicki, the kids, and the 12 Seasons Team
