Farmers Market October 28, 2017

Friends,

We will be at Lucky's Market on Hurstbourne from 10:30-12:30 tomorrow. The market may go longer but we are concerned about the weather and want to have the option to leave earlier if we need to. So, please come during that two hour window.  You will not be disappointed.

It is almost November yet we will have basil, okra, eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, radishes, beets, Swiss chard,winter squash, kale and grass fed/finished beef.  Also, the last fresh bouquets of flowers.

When we got up this morning (at 5:00!!) it was 32 degrees. Bad news for many crops (no more basil or okra this year -- check us out next summer -- 2018) but great news for our cool weather crops.  Kale especially likes a kiss of frost.  Makes it sweet and tender.  If you have never had kale kissed by Jack Frost you really haven't lived!

Thank you so much for the many positive comments/responses to last week's email about my surgery.  What a great community of friends we have.  I am doing very well and my recovery is on schedule.  Still limited in mobility but the future is bright.

Tomorrow's weather does not sound encouraging.  Please come out and support us in spite of the weather.  We have fresh organic produce that will only be available this week. Otherwise you will have to wait till next year.  I forgot to mention that we will even have a few pints of cherry tomatoes.

So, come on out and brave the elements.  We will be looking for you.

Larry
