Greeting shareholders and friends of Abbe Hills,
Market tomorrow morning is 9:00 until 11:00 in the Community Center in lovely downtown Springville. I'll bring eggs and Charlotte will bring bread. There will also be plenty of bakery, a few crafts, honey, some vegetables, fresh dry beans and ground cornmeal.
Several times this winter I've seen cars pull into the farm driveway (I can't believe they haven't got stuck) and people go into the big shed. Either it is robbers, or else some of you are going in there looking for eggs and having bad luck. The eggs are in a refrigerator in my garage in the winter. MUCH easier to manage when there's not 450 feet of snowdrift between me and them. If you want eggs, just call or zap me a note to make sure I know you are coming, and I'll either be here, or leave the garage unlocked so you can get them yourselves. And if it is robbers, I hope they get stuck next time.
Dan Specht has three beef quarters to sell this spring. If you are interested, contact him directly. His email is above. He'll also have more 20 lb boxes when we start the CSA in June. We are trying to work out a plan where he'll make beef deliveries here on a regular schedule.
I'm looking for a half-good or better set of four 15" tires, 225 or 235 if possible. I need to take the trailer to Wisconsin to pick up the seed potatoes in about 3 weeks, and it's not very roadworthy in its current condition - four tires of 4 different sizes, whatever I could hustle up at the time I needed one. So, if you're getting new four new tires on your big car this month and are selling or giving away the old ones, please think of me.
Still looking for the free or cheap automatic washer to convert to a salad spinner, too.
Trees Forever is hosting a program called "TreeKeepers" for people who want to learn more about urban and suburban tree planting, care, and advocacy. Sounds like an interesting program. It wouldn't hurt us to have more people sticking up for the trees. Look at the link to get the registration information.
Here's something to get you thinking: "Human Teeth Healthier in Stone Age Than Today". Bummer.
Hope to see you at market tomorrow,
