Hurry Up and Wait and then Hurry.....

That seems to be how gardening is: Hurry up and wait and then hurry....
We are in the thick of the season. We harvest about 20 pounds of spring lettuce a week. We wish we had planted more. We sell it for $5.50 a pound. We have also been selling new potatoes, green beans, squash and beets. We are informally starting a CSA- hope to create a nice community market for that.
We are having fun meeting new folks through the market garden. We put a produce sign out at the end of the driveway yesterday, and sold a bunch of beets and green beans and best of all met a new neighbor. We like this area more and more.
Tomorrow we go to the Farmers Market in Knoxville with beets, gr. beans, lettuce, sprouts, potatoes, squash and cukes.
We will go for our kitchen certification also. Who knows what we will come up with . Lots of ideas rolling around.
Still have small things to finish on the house and Ron has a remodeling job- not good timing but thankful anyways.
We are continuing to work on our website: HerbandPlow as a homesteading educational site. Big on ideas little on time.
