It seems that way, as we have had more than our fair share of crappy weather on Sunday mornings. We had one day that we could call 'hot', a few not so hot, and a lot downright anything but hot. Doesn't do a whole lot for the farmers market experience.
Last Sunday it rained the whole time.
Today it had rained, but wasn't raining for setup at least. Then mid morning the skies opened. Add some thunder and lightening to that, and it was just wonderful -NOT!
Thankfully, we'd left the dogs at home. Jake doesn't 'do' thunder.
Look at all the customers! Don't you wish you had been there!
Rubber boots were the footwear of choice, and we had made the right choice at least.
Thankfully it was relatively short lived, and the customers popped back up like mushrooms.
Speaking of which, look at this monster that showed up in the sheep field on Saturday morning.
These were nearby, laying on the ground. Something must have rooted them up.
Anyone know the type of mushroom?
It did clear up and was nice by the end of the market, but unfortunately not in time to dry the tents out.
My original blurb is below. This blog was started to show some of our customers where their food is coming from. But...since there aren't actually many of our customers reading it, and just because I wanted to... this blog now is all over the map. Lots of dog stuff, places we go, things we do, and of course gardening and animal stuff, and whatever else I feel like rambling on about.
We live on a 10 acre hobby farm in the Bradner area of Abbotsford, British Columbia. We are vendors at the White Rock Farmer's market, selling a large variety of items. These include jams, jellies and marmalades, sewn items, free range eggs, cut flower bouquets, fresh vegetables, herbs and fruit. We grow organically, although are not certified organic. As of summer 2017, our hobby farm houses 2 humans, 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 ewe, and 80-99 laying hens.
