Our last Pulaski market day

It is the last hurrah at the Marketplace, Pulaski. We have enjoyed, very much, selling at and attending this market. To celebrate the end of the season, I’ll be bringing:

– head lettuces
– loose leaf lettuces
– bell peppers
– hot peppers
– baby Nappa cabbages
– mixed greens (joy choi, mustard, kale, chard)
– green bean mix
– carrots
– radishes
– a sneak preview of our sweet potatoes (hello, Fall)!
– basil, bronze leaf fennel and lemon basil
– oh, yeah, some cherry tomatoes

I think that is it. See you soon!

Catching up

Today was jam packed with a lot of planting. Life happenings and Mother Nature has us behind, but we are pressing on. Today, I planted the rest of the tomatoes, bell and hot peppers, eggplant, the next round of green beans, Lima beans, black-eyed peas, sweet corn, ornamental corn, cucumbers, squashes and celery. Phew! I know. Tomorrow will involve some weeding and spreading of straw mulch. Anyway, we are happy to finally have things going in the garden. Next up will be starting seeds in soil blocks for the fall crops. Hard to believe isn’t it? While toiling away, I had good company. Here she is:
