The 3 day show along with the Hillcrest Farmers Market provided something our farm has not had since last summer, a 4 pay day weekend! Market money this time of year is rare and appreciated especially with the extra expenses of starting our spring crops and bringing on a new growing system.
Our spring tomato seedlings will be ready for transplanting next week, let's hope our 20 degree nights are behind us.
As a small market farmer, half of my passion is starting seeds, watching them grow and bear fruit for our customers. The other half is to share the processes and build a food relationship with those same people. The flower and garden show provided an opportunity to meet new people, introduce our farm and plant a relationship seed. Let's hope that seed germinates and grows organically into lifetime opportunity to share good food, friendship and a passion for making a difference by buying local AND organic.
