The day we've waited for since last November is finally here. I love the surge of energy that comes with getting everything ready for the first Farmer's Market of the season. Doing last minute details to the products I'll be carrying. Setting up the canopy to let it air out from the few months it spent in the basement and realizing that I am missing two large tubs of yarn! Kind of hard to sell it and the Fiber CSA if I don't have it. So, I took a break from frantic searching to bore all of you.
The goat's milk soaps and lotions are always a work in progress so finding them..not a problem. Oh, by the way, we have still not had another baby here since the first one that I announced earlier in the month. So, of course, we will have to have a farm sitter while we are gone tomorrow. We got new table covers (aka Walmart bed sheets!) this season and I noticed this morning that something had spilled on the packaging and bled through to to sheet, so now I get to add laundry to the list of the "To Do's".
Each year, the inventory grows, the tubs and boxes get heavier, I seem to get heavier, and those first time organization skills are out the window. You know what? We wouldn't have it any other way!
Good luck to everyone who is getting started tomorrow. My hope is that it is a healthy and proffitable season for all of us. It's our time to get the word out to "buy and support local" and to educate.
