This is our busy season. It will last till November.
We’re doing customer deliveries two days a week and farmers’ market on Saturdays. That’s three days of picking, cleaning and bagging, plus the time at the market. In the time that’s left over we actually have to tend the farm.
But we love being a source of high-quality food for our community. We’ve been selling out at the market and we’re picking up more loyal customers every week.
I still grumble about the fact that only a tiny percentage of our community is on board with the local food movement. But that little seed is sprouting, and that is encouraging.
