I was delighted this morning to see that my rat-tailed radish seeds were germinating. This is a special and interesting crop and I am excited to see how it sells at the market.
I had two markets over the weekend and was really happy with the reception I got at both. On saturday I had my usual table at the Hamilton Farmers market and though I didn't have much to sell, people were really interested and I sold out quickly. I didn't have a moment to be bored - there were so many people asking questions. I hope I get some customers for my CSA program from it. Time will tell.
On sunday was the Casterton market. I was only there to promote my gourds but I also had seeds for sale. The seeds sold well and many people were interested in the gourds as well. It went really well and I gave away more flyers for the CSA.
It looks like the market garden will be a goer, and everyone was really interested in buying unusual and 'different' vegetables.
I ordered some more seeds off Ebay and should get them at the end of the week I hope. More beds to dig, *sigh*
