SUNSHINE THIS SATURDAY AT THE MARKET!!!
For those of you who have been following our egg/health department saga - thanks for your support and feedback. We are working on what seems to be a simple solution. Border Star has agreed to provide space for storage of refrigeration. We are looking at a possible purchase of an on-site refrigerator for our egg vendors. However, this purchase was not in our 2010 budget, so donations from our supporters are welcome!!!
Here's what's fresh and new with our vendors:
From Blue Door Farm:
Another sloshy week - 7 inches. The ark is almost ready - we'll be selling tickets at market this Saturday. Come early, space is limited.
And while we are at market we'll also have snow peas, asparagus, incredibly yummy head lettuce (we've been having huge salads every night - add boiled eggs, lightly steamed asparagus, fresh strawberries, snow peas, cottage cheese and whatever else is hiding in the ice box - the perfect spring supper!) and broccoli.
It looks like it is going to perfect weather on Saturday. For those of you who've been holding out waiting to get your tomato plants - we'll have plenty. We'll also have lots of herb transplants and more.

this week (this batch is really lovely!) and all of our flavors of Fresh
Well the weather is looking up, and we are all smiles around here. Planted 50 trays of 'stuff' this
morning and hope to plant again Friday morning, too! Come see us Saturday- beautiful peony and iris
bouquets, transplants, containers full of herbs and flowers, stepping stones, hypertufa pots, and-
oh yes- goodies to eat too. Microgreens look especially good so far (this week's experiment might
just be a success!!), more ramps, lettuce, spinach, cilantro, etc. Will bring more of those pepper
transplants that sold so fast!
See you Saturday.
From Childrens' Corner - Hello! We're making egg box critters this weekend! Bugs and insects with wobbly eyes, pipecleaners
and recycled egg boxes! How many legs will your bug have?

Rain, rain and more rain. We hate it but plants are happier about it
than us. My garden is doing beautifully with all this rain. I guess
part of this is a testament to the raised bed (Square Ft Gardening
Method). So, don't let all this rainy weather keep you from getting
your garden put in. I'll have tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash,
cucumbers, pumpkins, watermellon, sunchokes and much more. Let the rain
help you establish your plants and forget that water bill. At least
until the summer! We'll be bringing our kitty litter earth boxes this
week as well. For those who don't have a garden and still want
tomatoes, this might be the best option for you! See y'all Saturday!
Hello Brookeside Friends!
Will this rain ever let the plants grow. Our garden is having a slow start without some sun to go with
all the water. Josiah feels he will never have tomatoes! We will have our burritos that will be filled
with farm fresh eggs, Benidict Builders sausage, collard greens, onion, cheese and potatoes. Our
Vegetarian burritos will have eggs, collard greens, onion, cheese and potatoes. These are a wonderful
market breakfast to enjoy while you shop the market. If a sweet tooth is what you have try a scone
or Honey pecan roll with Puddin' Head coffee to brighten your day.
The usual breads, cookies, granola, and bread sticks will be available for your weekday needs, so come
by and see Luke or Chris.
See you Saturday,
Kathy, Luke and Chris
