Greetings Abbe Hills shareholders and friends,
The market tomorrow is at the Mt. Vernon Community Center, east of downtown, from 11:00 until 1:00. I'll be there with eggs. Charlotte's going to be busy Saturday, but she's going to bake tonight so I will also have an armload of her plain baguettes for you.
To see what would happen, I planted a little lettuce in the the hoophouse about Dec 15 and watered it in. The soil was still a little warm then, and lettuces started popping up actually during the blizzard on the 22nd. Then they stopped. Not dead. Not frozen. Not growing. Nothing. I planted a little more lettuce and spinach on Jan 9th, mostly because it was warm enough that day that I could use the garden hose to get water inside. Nothing yet. We're headed for a cold week, but I'll bet it warms up again after that, and I imagine things will start to pop. Or not. Either way, I'm working on getting us something green as soon as possible. I'm ready for some crunch.
Hope to see you at the market.
