Well we survived the first holiday weekend of the season.
The restaurant was very busy all week and in spite of a cool cloudy Saturday, we had a good amount of traffic at The Saturday Morning Market.
Someone said we have not hit 90 degrees yet this year, which I guess is a record.
And it doesn’t look like we will hit 90 this week either.
Well, there are two sides to that.
The cool weather herbs are thriving, dill, cilantro, mint, oregano, and the sugar snap peas and broccoli are producing like crazy, the potato plants are huge, onions are happy, and carrots and radishes will be sweet when they are ready to pick.
On the other hand, it may be slowing down the progress of warm weather crops.
However, there are tomatoes on the vine, the squashes are blooming and the peppers have blooms as well.
The only thing that looks really bad is the basil I planted because basil loves hot hot weather, and we haven’t been very hot yet!
Oh well, we have lots of summer left to enjoy those warm-weather crops.
I’d rather have it like this than seeing 90’s in early May and everything is “toast” by July 4th.
So we had lots of goodies at The Market.
You can expect to find beautiful spring vegetables, baked goods, salsa and jelly, tamales, cabbage rolls, hummus, and tabouli.
We also have free-range chicken, eggs, and grass-fed beef. Come and see us from 9 to Noon!
Enjoy the Earth! Diana
