Saturday - Mother's Day is One Day Away

Tomorrow is a very busy day for us and hopefully we are on your list of must visit places. Hubby is proudly stating that he is the FTD man for the day and will greet on-farm visitors with a warm smile. Be gentle though because all of the different items, sizes and prices is already stressing him out a little. I do have a list so he seems a little flustered just ask to see it. He does not know the difference between a marigold and a zinnia. I WILL HAVE MY CELL PHONE WITH ME. ;)

While you are here check out the load of rocks in the front yard. It is my Mother's Day gift from Tom and the girls. It is the first installment of my new landscaping project for the front of our house. As Tom put it how do you buy flowers for someone who literally has thousands of them on hand? I love my rocks. This particular load has great color and shape.

While hubby and the girls are greeting people at the farm I will be at the farmers market in Manhattan from 8:00 a.m. to Noon. I will hang around a little later if the crowd holds. I tried to bring a little of everything and hopefully what I brought will NOT come home. I have A LOT of purple flowers in the car... GO WILDCATS.

We had another t-ball practice and today my Livie knocked the snot out of the ball. Go Livie!!!! Autie seeing how pleased I was with my load of rocks busied herself colleting gravel. I tried very hard to be just as excited about the gravel as I was the limestone. I think the other mom's might have thought I was nuts. Sitting next to me was a fellow farm marketer and at least she understood that for some women there will never be a diamond that is big enough to rival a truckload of limestone. If you come tomorrow ask Autie about the nail polish she has all over her leg. It is a nice color BUT....

Please come visit us this weekend. We would love to see you.

Monday Morning

While checking in on things this morning I found a few surprises.  All of the tomato varieties planted to date - Stupice, Beverlodge, Italian Tree Tomato and Marglobe are sprouting quite nicely.  I was pleasantly surprised to find the yellow strawberries are also breaking through like tiny blades of grass- whew!  The broccoli thyme and chamomile are also coming up.  Even to my amazement the living stone is spouting, but just barely.  The petunias and celeric are another story...  At this point it is still a little early for both- so patience. :} 

This week we will continue with new plantings of wonderful tomato goodness.  This week I will start my cherry tomato varieties - Reisentraube, Aunt Ginny's Green Cherry, the Pink Pearl, European Snowberry, White Rabbit, the Yellow Taxi, Juane Flemme, Orange Parchute, the Shooting Star, Yellow Grape, Red Fig, Black Cherry and much more.  About a third of my tomato plants will be some sort of cherry tomato and most are heirloom and yummy.  If you like your cherry tomatoes sugary sweet, full flavor or rich and smokey- I will likely have one you will love.  My cherry tomatoes come in a variety of colors and sizes.  One of my favorite salads during the summer is one I call Tomato Confetti where a colorful assortment of tomatoes are tossed with feta cheese, olive oil, red onion, and garlic.  YUM! 

I will also start a tray of cabbage and additional trays of lettuce.  Inside the tunnel I will begin planting some early onions.  Hubby has been busy making planters for me that are truly unique and will only be for sale on farm or at one of our farmers markets.  It is made entirely from recycled material and is stunning on the dining room or patio table.  That hubby of mine is a keeper!
