Introducing Mostly Sunny

Tomorrow is opening day at the Kootenai County Farmer's Market. I chose the name of our farmer's market business to be "Mostly Sunny". We went with this rather than our blog name of The Beer Garden because we obviously can't sell beer at the market. The Beer Garden blog got it's start on The Spokesman Review's blogroll on Huckleberries Online and many of our local friends know me as Sunny and they know Jeff as Bent. These names were simply monikers that originated from the Spokesman's blog world. Hopefully, this clears up any confusion...

I am very excited to be a part of the market this year and I must admit....I'm a little nervous as well. I have no idea what to expect and I know that many folks who participate have much larger growing operations than we do. So I guess my only real fear is we won't have as much to sell...at least not in the front end. I heard from a fellow market vendor that some vendors simply don't show up until they have produce to sell. Nevertheless, we want to be there on opening day just to get a feel for how the market operates...if I run out of plants to sell then rest assured we will be back to the market when harvest time comes around.

Here is a preview of some of the plants that we will be selling tomorrow:

Straight Eight cukes
Cabbage - Amazing
Various Herbs
Various Peppers
Various Tomatoes

  12. Mr. H, Thanks...it was fun but really chilly today...hopefully by next week we get some warm temps... I believe I was the only one there with celery which was kinda cool. I started most of it back in February so it is quite mature. If you are ever in the Saturday market area, please stop by and say hello : )
