To Market, To Market We Go

The Hudson Farmers' Market is up and running. As the saying goes, "It takes a village," or in our case, "a large extended family" to make things run smoothly. This past week, Chris helped set up before he went off to NYC for a meet and greet with the Long Island CSA members. Katie came with the kids, who love to patronize the other vendors--especially the lemonade stand. Hannah (Chris and Katie's niece) worked along side Katy and Katie, helping customers with their plant choices, as well as fresh produce including mesclun, baby arugula, spinach, radishes and spring turnips. This week, we were treated to some wonderful live music which makes the market even more enjoyable.

Behold, The Strawberry!

I had quite a surprise on my morning walk with Lucy. I was in the back upper field across from my house and as I was walking by the strawberry patch, low and behold, there were a few ripe berries. Don't tell Chris or Katie, but I ate one in the field and brought back this one, which, as you can see, was also devoured. What a great way to start my morning. Later this week, the temperatures are supposed to slowly rise, so I think we may have to pay another visit to the strawberry patch....just to make sure all is well. The deer love the berries too, so hopefully the double electric fence will keep them away.

Pictures from the Farm

It was a beautiful, sunny morning on this Cinco De Mayo and I couldn't resist taking some pictures from around the farm. The Hudson Farmer's Market kicks off this Saturday, May 8, so stop by and give these plants a new home!

Staying Cool

This past weekend we had a burst of summer heat. The kids stayed cool in the stream.
