Season Opener

So we went to the Krankie's Market, and it was all it's cracked up to be! There were plenty of customers buying a bounty of fresh produce, transplants, meats, cheese, jams, etc. The thing is very organized, to the point that they have people there to help you unload your truck and set up your tent. A Cadillac market, if you will. I know I have said this ad nauseum, but I think it's shaping up to be a first class market. We just need more and more people there buying and supporting local growers.

In other news, Saturday is TTD (Tomato Transplant Day)!! It is pretty self explanatory, I guess, but it's the day we move our transplants from little box trays into the actual ground. Kind of like sending your child off on her first day of school, but with less talking. It will be a long day, but with the help of Scott, Bill and probably Sadie (not to mention BG and Carla in supporting roles involving childcare) we'll get it done. I love TTD - this is a GREAT time of year to be a farmer because the weather is great for being outside (not too hot), the bugs haven't really found their niches yet and all the baby plants begin to thrive. Hopefully we will be able to have a day this year when folks can come visit the farm to see what I mean; but we may have to wait for that until next year. Stay tuned!

Below are some pictures from the market; we'll be there again next week, so look for us!
