Yippee!!! It's finally here...the opening day of the 2012 season! That's right, we open this Saturday at 9am! Okay, can you tell I am excited? lol
I have spoken to a few of the farmers and it appears that this warm spell has been both a blessing and a real pain in the you know what. Some plants bloomed way too early and therefore are spent before the market opens. That would be the case of our lilacs...they were beautiful two weeks ago. Sorry we can't bring them to the market, but smile knowing that we enjoyed the lovely color and the fragrant scent.
On the good side, many of the plants are enjoying the warmth and sunshine and so are the laying hens! Yup, eggs will be plentiful on Saturday. I can't wait to get some farm fresh eggs, the grocery store eggs have seen the last of me for the season. A few more “gotta haves” include pepper jam, fruit jams and honey. And, I can guarantee that we'll have a beautiful butter crunch lettuce salad on Saturday night. Herb seasoning and homemade soap will round out my shopping day! :)
It's gonna be a great opening day, so come by and join us while we celebrate our opening day!
