Weekend in Review and Week ahead

Farm Days- March 2010
Where to begin? Friday night we were at the Oakdale Mall helping set up the Otsiningo Farmers Market table. Saturday we had market at the Cornell Cooperative Extension building on Upper Front St. in Binghamton. We came home and worked in the greenhouse seeding more herbs.Then worked on our lists of what needs to be done this year, what order and who's doing what! Sunday we were planning on being in the greenhouse all day seeding and transplanting, but it was freezing. We took the kids out for a little bit and Eric Jr got soaking wet from playing with his trucks in the water that was sitting on the ground from all the rain and snow melting. So we decided to take them in so that he wouldn't get sick.

All in all it was a pretty good weekend. Realization is that it is the beginning of the season and like I told my mom, "Let the games begin." This is the time of us not having time to do anything outside of working on the farm.

Week ahead:
Seed, transplant, build shelves, work on refinishing the building that is going to be our new "Store/stand," start working on stuff for market (tents, signage, recipe cards), and package some more of the dried herb shakers.

We have the stall auction and Ithaca Market Clean up on Saturday.

The start of Ithaca Market is coming up, Saturday April 2nd is the first market there. Make sure you mark your calenders!

Ithaca Farmers Market- April 2010
Last year it was packed. It took some people almost 2 hours of waiting in line in their cars before they could get in to the market. Although it was really nice out, 70 degrees according to my records. This year hopefully we won't have a foot of snow on the ground.
