The markets are coming right along and having work be busy is a blessing. It’s not busy enough, mostly because I am so far ahead but its better than the activing level during the Winter. I am very excited about the markets this year. Last year having just started and still a learning curve it was a lot more stressful. This year things are falling right into place and its fun to be connecting again with the vendors and farmers.
I was in LA for the weekend, glorious 78 degree weather and got a little color in just the hour I spent mowing the yard at 9:00 am. Of course when I looked out at my garden this morning, the knot weed has exploded in the last week. Here comes the knot weed, invading the paths and beds with its crazy I can grow through anything and will, just watch, attitude.
Every night this week is booked and next week Katherine and I leave for Hawaii (Woot) so this weekend will be knot weed extraction! Very little has been planted yet so at least I can dig and dig and dig oh and dig a little more to try to get every fiber of root because clearly it only takes a molecule to start back up.
I also need to figure out what I am packing for Hawaii (Woot). Besides a couple swim suits and flip-flops there are a few other things I’m sure I will need. My co-worker who has a house on, is from Maui and is there several times a year visiting family has promised to send me some information on where to go and where to eat that are not all the tourist-y spots.
