Been busy, really really busy. The last time I was blogging the potatoes were doing okay after all. Well, herbs love the dry weather as much as the bugs and weeds do. Have you noticed the amount of beautiful butterflies on the flowers? The Wednesday weekly basket deliveries are going very well, it's a thrill to have others enjoying the food from our Farm. The Kemptville Kinsmen Farmers' Market is proving to be a great source of customers and visits each Sunday. The Market is such a great social scene too. Otherwise my head would be buried in office files 100% of the time rather than just 70%. Days start early, usually digging potatoes or plucking tomatoes and peppers at 7 a.m., in the office from 10 ish to 6:30somethingish. We actually began planning for the winter plant in the Greenhouse and are excited to be plotting out the garden themes for next spring - wow. Time is passing so quickly, I'd just like to yell "Stop!" just for a little bit. Am off to meet Julie in Picton for a few days, we both need the rest. Won't be at the Farmers' Market this Sunday the 2nd but will be back September 9, ready for MarketPlates (see the Kemptville Kinsmen Farmers' Market site for details).
Remember you can call me or email me for your supply of tomatoes and herbs for sauces and salsas. The cilantro is coming along quite nicely, expect it to be ready in a week or so.
The last beans and snow peas we planted a few weeks ago should be ready next weekend. Celery is wonderful, must grow more of that next year. We're still harvesting broccoli. The new salad greens should be ready mid to late September for fall munchin'.
Have a wonderful long end of summer weekend everyone!
