Summertime, summertime, sum sum summertime!
Flowers & vegetables are being planted. Patio furniture is set up & pools are opening. The A/C has been blasting. We've definitely had some summer type weather. Maybe Mother Nature felt badly about that ice storm in April & decided to turn up the heat?
Bloom was quite heavy in most varieties this spring. The bees had some great weather to get the pollination job done. The fear of frost is gone. Now it's "wait & see" what grows. Stay tuned!
Fred is "taking the show on the road" to the Pickering Farmers Market! If you're in the area on Tuesdays 8:30 to 2, stop in for a chat, sample & purchase. This will be real handy for our Pickering/Ajax customers!
This reminds me of a personal story that you might find amusing or not. Many years ago, Fred went to a Farmers Market to sell apples. He would tease our daughters that he was going "to market, to market to buy a fat pig". They would scream "no daddy" & run away. Yet another odd nursery rhyme. Fyi, one of the girls is vegan now.
