Scenes from our Growers Market

Nothing gets me more excited than a ute full of freshly picked organic greens, and today the inaugural Judbury Growers Market came up trumps!






Greens there were by the bucket, by the box and by the brown paper bag. Asparagus, kale, rocket and silverbeet. Green onions, mesclan, broad beans and sugar snaps. Despite less than perfect weather, we were pretty chuffed with the turnout today. Nearly all the stalls sold fresh produce, which is the primary objective of this market. We even had a bit of a rush at the start with the early birds clamoring for produce which took the growers unawares as they unloaded their trucks. Consequently all the fresh stuff sold out early - a good sign.

I held a stall for our school with leftover preserves and plants from our recent fair. Most things sold but there's enough tomato seedlings left to plant for sauce. Local wisdom dictates not to plant out tomato seedlings before Show day, lest a late frost destroy them. That gives me one week to prepare the patch. Busy week in the dirt ahead!
