Farm Market Season
Two weeks before there was a lot more offered, so I hoped it would always be so. There were a couple of farmers there who used hoop houses to extend the season. They did not seem to be there last night, so, I learned a lesson, to be more flexible. Despite not finding more greens and vegetables, we did get some eggs and yogurt. And it was a beautiful evening to be outside.
I love the drive to the farm, too. It's located in an area that I lived for 5 or so years when I was a little girl. I used to ride my bike near the farm and fish in the creek with my dad. I love this area that seems to be protected from urban sprawl, somehow.
We'll be back in a couple weeks to try again. Next week the local city's farm market opens. It's more like a festival, but still lots of vendors with great food. I am looking forward to going.
Today we go get dirt to fill up the container garden and start seeds. More on that later as well.
