more plants

Day 33

Today was the farmer's market.  Emma sold all her blueberries in less than an hour!  Elizabeth sold a little of several things and made a some money towards college.  Next week we'll hopefully add to what she has to sell.  One thing that sold well were the cut flowers from both Emma's house and ours.  What a great idea!

Of course my down fall was the garden club tent right next to the girl's with lots of end of the season plants.  I picked up a hops vine, a butterfly bush, feverfew, motherwort and pink hyssop.  Now for some ideas about where to plant them! 

After a trip to the farm for fresh milk, I have a gallon of yogurt and a half gallon of buttermilk culturing on the counter.

First green tomatoes of the season to fry up nice and crispy with some yellow squash!  More fingerling potatoes and beans to cream!

  1. Make sure to plant the hop vine where it can grow 20+ ft! They grow VERY fast and extremely tall!
