Wow, the rain was crazy this week. We ended up getting 5 inches at the farm and as of tonight have to enter the garden with a 4-wheeler because the walk way is flooded. The good news is everything will really take off. The bad news is this includes the weeds. Anyone really love weeding?
Hope you all had a chance to read the article in the Capital Journal about the Farmers Market. If not, here’s a link: http://capjournal.com/articles/2011/06/23/news/doc4e02a20f524a4476721276.txt.
As I said last week, let’s get the word out there about the market. Although in our 3rd season, a lot of the community still doesn’t know about all of the great items available for them. Hope to see you this weekend!
