It's On!!!









Things are growing like mad in the garden right now. Beans, cucumbers, zucchini, cilantro, dill, beet greens, green onions, swiss chard, kale, lettuce heads, lettuce mix, summer squash, parsley, carrots, potatoes and basil are all super stars these days at the market and in the CSA shares. The tomatoes, peppers, sunflowers, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower are all quickly growing and will be ready soon. We had our first tomato sandwich this weekend and WOW, nothing beats a fresh ripe garden tomato.

The Summerside Farmers' Market has been a great venue for our business. The new location downtown has far exceeded everyone's expectations. We had our grand opening last weekend weekend and it was a great turn out as usual. It is so wonderful to be apart of such a great vibrant growing group of people. We have wonderful vendors who are all producing a great product. The market is open every Saturday from 9:00 untill 1:00, come check it out!!!

Your produce is looking amazing sis! So sad we can't enjoy it! I heard about your fancy new wagon from mom/dad last night - pretty nifty! Should save you time and energy eh?
