They Are Calling for Rain

In the morning I am headed to the Old Cheney Road Farmers Market and they are calling for rain.  It might rain all day and it might just rain for a little bit… 60%.  If it rains it could be torrential downpours.  It is moment s like these that can bedevil the farm marketer.  The lettuce is picked, prepped, bagged and tagged along with the cilantro, parsley, green onions and chocolate mint.  The worry none of it freezes and my family cannot possible eat it all before it turns… and then there are the Mother’s Day baskets that will keep, but… Mother’s Day is next Sunday.  Oh did I metioned it also rained through last week's market too.  I hope this is not the season's trend to come. 

I am not complaining so much a worrying out loud.  My only choices are A.) let the worry deprive me of what could be 5 whole hours of sleep before morning OR B.) I can give it to God.  I was up at 3:00 a.m. this morning headed for the farmers market in Manhattan and so I choose B.  The car is loaded with tables and plants, produce and display materials and as I doze off to sleep tonight my prayer will be that the rain subsides between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.  Let’s see what the morning brings.

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day at L'Ecuyer Gardens was spent planting AND reaping.  I started an additional tray of tomatoes.  This week we started Rouge D'Irak, the Great White and Beefsteak.  Also planted are some additional petunias and broccoli.  The plants I started two weeks ago are growing rapidly and will be transplanted into larger pots this weekend.  Reaping the tastiness of our hard work was also on tap for the day.  I made spaghetti sauce from our tomatoes. Our sauce was so yummy.  The tomato base was a nice mixture of Roma and black trieffel tomatoes and it was so good.  The peppers, onions, garlic, and the herbs were our own.  I am looking forward to the leftovers for lunch this week.  This weekend we also hope it is dry enough to plant our asparagus and strawberry plugs.  We should have strawberries this year but will need to be patient for the asparagus.  :{  I heard from People's Grocery in Manhattan too and I look forward to selling through them once the season is underway.  Yeah!!!!   Livie asked me at our Valentine dinner if she could go to some of the farmers markets with me this summer.  As a Mom nothing would bring me more joy!  My Autie is still very young and will try to bring her to a few this year but maybe more next year.
