It’s 6 a.m., Friday the 3rd and the first day of Farmer’s Market. I’m sitting on the Rushville square and the temperature is 39 degrees and pouring down rain. I’m cold and hungry but I need to sell plants from our greenhouse, so I will tough it out. It turns out the are four of us brave souls and I did pretty well in spite of it raining all morning, and the temp falling to 38 and staying there. We can only hope and pray the weather is better next Friday.
I planted some more flowers and more tomatoes in the greenhouse, because a friend who also has a greenhouse, said it was all right for it to get above 100 in there as long as there’s good air circulation. I wasn’t going to plant anymore thinking it was going to get too hot, but she changed my mind. This first year is a learning process for the family, so hopefully next year we get more of it right.
