Saturday 5/30

This Saturday; 5/30 
 Mill City Farmers market
 8 - 1pm
 The first hour is reserved for high risk shoppers

 I'll have squash bread and rhubarb bread
 15$ per loaf, 8$ per half loaf

The rhubarb bread is made with rhubarb, orange zest and ginger.  Wow
 The squash bread; curry, ginger and cinnamon.  Rich
 Both use Sunrise Flour Mill flour and Sunshine harvest eggs
Penzeys spices
  
 I'm sorry I don't really have enough rhubarb to sell bunches of it.  It's a new patch and it takes time to develop.   I don't want to pull too much during a development year.
  There are other vendors at the market that will have it Saturday I'm sure

 Honey;  I'm out of the large honey; have enough 8 oz jars for a couple more weeks, then we'll have to wait on the bees....maybe mid July 
   8oz for 8$,  2 for 15$

 I'll respond and send you a PayPal.me link.

I've got a couple plantings of sweet corn in the ground, although nothing has emerged yet
 Snap peas look good.  I think I'll have some early June
 Tomatoes and melons have survived the cold nights.   Tomatoes forming lots of flowers os I'll have to get some bumble bees in there soon to pollinate

It'll be nice to get past this cold snap so I can be done with the row covers...  I hope

Prepping greenhouses for transplanting

Prepping the greenhouses 
I like to to dig trenches then fill the trench with compost, then cover with dirt 
It makes for nice loose soil for roots to wander    
It's a lot of work but the melons and tomatoes seem to really benefit from the effort 
We'll start transplanting tomatoes April 20th
Melons May 1st
