Getting Ready for the Market

Have you ever had one of those days? Well today has been one of those days for me. I tried so hard to keep on task today, but I had several emergencies that I could not let go without addressing. Anyhow, the day is coming to a close and I am still on schedule with the seeding. I have one variety of seed that needs to be reseeded. Germination was only about 50% and then they damped off. On the next batch I am going to watch it real close. Not to say that I was negligent the first time, but I am going to be more cautious not to make any mistakes. I use a bleach solution to sterilize the seeding trays and I use quality seed, so I am not sure what went wrong. I added more ventilation in the seed room thinking that there might not be enough air movement. Hopefully, this will correct the issue. 

Tonight, my wife and I are heading to a meeting for the Hinckley Farmer's Market. We are excited about the upcoming season and hope it will even be more successful than last year. Nora Gubbins and Christy Bark are doing an excellent job in organizing the market. For more information about the market, be sure to check out the website at

There is also a link to the Facebook page for the market.
