Weekly Market Notes for February 21, 2008

Hello Market Friends:

Apologies for getting your excitement up prematurely a couple of weeks ago...this is actually the week the seeds arrive. Colette Murphy will be back with a great selection of herb, flower, and heirloom vegetable seeds and lots of helpful tips on how to grow them.

Good growing news from Country Meadows Gardens, too:

We know that the weather we've been having is probably making it difficult for most people to think about gardening but that is not the case here at the farm. In fact on Saturday we fired up one of the greenhouses and started enough seeds for a few thousand tomato plants. This year we will be growing more than 75 varieties of heirloom tomatoes so we decided to get an early start. Oh, what a great feeling!! Angelos and Linda

From Jessie Sosnicki: Ben and I will have the staple storage crops still available - beets, onions, cabbage and potatoes and I'll have all my foods as well. Our weekly blog is fun this week and is titled: "Why Chicken Soup is going to taste great tonight" - a fun farm horse story with pictures, followed up with a good recipe for Chicken Soup at .Check it out!

From Irene of Deer Valley: I will have a great selection of fresh venison available this week.

We will miss having Ute Zell of Smiling Goat & Co. (formerly Stonehenge Farms) with us at the market for the next couple of months. She'll be busy working out the details of her cheese-making operation. We wish her every success with this venture, and hope to have her back as soon as possible.

Miquela Leahy will join us this time with local flours and grains from Merrylynd Organics.

When you get this message, the ovens will be warming for the warm-hearted-early-rising bakers. Think about those cinnamon buns....
See you at the market!
