First the good news! The second best thing to do with your outdoor

The second best thing to do with your outdoor time this time of year, after spending the day with us, is to visit the Happy Berry Farm. It is to agriculture what Van Gogh is to art. Simply indescribable, and especially this year! Thanks to all the winter and early spring rain, the farm is more lush with greenery than I’ve ever seen it. Driving in the berms are covered in flowers, the fields an array of bursting fruit bushes and vines. It’s verdant and abundant to the point of being magical. If you want to see what intelligent, regional, earth-friendly agriculture looks like, take the short drive to their farm. It’s a cornucopia of wonder. And now to the bad news. It’s summer and the wake boats have been unleashed onto our area lakes. You know the ones, the ones whose wakes are so large as to endanger gentle kayakers, quiet fishermen and all those out in small boats. The ones who are eroding the shoreline of all our lakes, but especially Jocassee. Like the proverbial intersection that everyone knows needs a stop sign but no one does a thing until someone is killed, do we also wait until some kayaker is flipped and drowned by the ridiculous wakes before acting? It’s time to do something about this, folks. Wake boats should be outlawed from all our area lakes.  ~B
