It's Farmers Market Season Again

We had our first market of the season and it was the best opening market we have ever done, by far. We harvested 3 to 4 times more than we ever have in the past and we sold everything we brought except 3 bunches of chives (which have never been a good seller for us but have sold better his year than at any time in the past). It was a good feeling to go home with empty coolers (except for milk, eggs and meat that we picked up at the market) and pockets full of money.

The market was not a busy one but we were the only produce vendors at the market and we had aspargus and lettuce, among other things, making us very popular. Our fresh produce sold like hotcakes.

Met "Wine Deb" (of Key West wine and garden blog) which was fun. Heard the sad news that Don E's wife had suddenly died two weeks ago than ranb into Don, he looked so sad. At the end of the market I was invited to the 29th (30th?) installation of St Alphonso's Pancake Breakfast.

It's good to be back
