Although we won't be at the Farmers Market with our plants after tomorrow, we will still have plenty over the next few weeks. I need my efforts to shift from the seedlings to ensuring I can get my own garden planted, split with completion of the text for my tomato book. So....if you find spaces in your garden, or haven't gotten around to purchasing plants yet, just send an email and schedule a time to come out to our house to get some. There is plenty of just about everything!
So how was it out under the tree today? It was an odd day - very early there was a nice blue sky and some warming sunshine...then it clouded up and got breezy and cool (what else is new?). This may be our first spring with our seedlings where I've not worn shorts and a Tshirt - jeans and a coat all three weekends. (I know...back to the atypical spring). It is also the first spring that the strawberries aren't sweet and succulent (those we've tasted are firm and a bit green tasting - not warm enough!), and there aren't any sugar snap peas yet. So weird! But it was another day with some really nice people stopping by - some old friends, and lots of new ones. A few discussed the odd phenomenon of Sungold seedling foliage issues in the cool, rainy weather. It isn't disease - it happens every year, and Sungold outgrows it. Thanks to everyone who came by today!
So....come visit me under the Live Oak in the Farmers Market parking lot tomorrow and let's talk gardening! Because after tomorrow, if we do see you at the market, we will be shoppers, not sellers!
