Opening day at our local Marietta Square Farmer's Market was yesterday (Sat). Considering the weather was threatening (it held off, thank God) and there were over 60 market vendors, and we were also competing with the Arts & Crafts event, I did well! I sold a lot of herbs, and some of those pecans from the fall, too! Several people stopped by to say hey that had emailed me. All in all it was a great market day! Now I've been busy since then, in between thunderstorms, potting up various mints (orange, pineapple, apple, spearmint and curled spearmint, lemon mint and peppermint) for all the folks who love love love mint!! And started some more basil, as i am getting low already. Ordered some new varieties to try today, too, one called blue spicy basil and then purple ruffles, cinnamon basil, and a few others i can't remember. I like to have several varieties available. Also some lemon thyme, i have lots of folks ask for it so i ordered a couple of seed packs for that. Thyme grows well from seed. Well I'd better call it a night, hope you all had a great weekend and that next week the sun shines on us all! Happy Gardening!!
