What’s been going on! 

Rain again on Friday?!!  This is the fourth Friday in a row with rain and I am beginning to lose my sense of humor.  Now we would much prefer it precipitates on any day but Saturday with Friday being the next worst as it makes it much more difficult to get everything harvested for the Saturday market.  Let’s hope that it holds off until at least noon.

Another busy week with some tremendously beautiful spring weather and some too unseasonably hot days too.  One of the things we are trying to finish up for the spring is getting the firewood in the shed.  We had a cut a bunch over the winter but just now have gotten around to splitting it.  So parts of Tuesday and Thursday mornings we split and stacked half a winters worth.  After 36 winters of heating with wood it doesn’t make the job any faster or easier.  Another morning or two and we will be done for this season.

Didn’t mean to spark a panic with last week’s newsletter about our last market being June 29th.  We had a number of folks ask/think that it was our last market forever.  We reassured them that it was only for this season and that we would be back next February for our 35th spring at the Carrboro Market.  I encourage those who missed our newsletter about our new plans to catch up on it so you will know what we are doing and how it will affect what we will have at market.
