What a great market day!
I'm so excited! We had a great market day today with weather in the mid 70's the place was crowded. Everyone had citrus, so the key to doing well was having citrus that no one else had and having green items. Everyone had grapefruit, so since we had oranges and calamansi, we did very well, not to mention everyone wanted mustard greens! It is so strange, no one wanted mustard greens a month ago, but today I sold out. Cilantro always does well, so not surprised by that. Just wish my sugar snaps would start producing. They are taking forever. Other people sold out of their lettuce, but all my lettuce is too small to bring to market, and growing really slow. I think it is confused. One day we have 70 degree weather. the next day it is in the 30's. My poor asparagus doesn't know which season it is, part fern, part stalks. Winter/spring is the best time to be a market grower in Texas..summers are too hot to sell anything. Our summers are like the rest of the country's winters-a time to replenish soil and make structural improvements. Eeek...turned into a novel...just so excited!!
