Market Day 7/27

 We had another great day at market.  It was overcast with a strong chance for rain but it held off. Sales were a bit slow at first but things picked up late in the morning and we sold all of our flowers, hooray!  I made 28 bouquets the night before and then made about 8 more at market.  I love coming home without flowers.  I received great feedback about my flowers too.  They last very well.  One repeat customer came to me and said that her flowers from two weeks ago are still looking good.  Success!

Next week I am shooting for 40 bouquets.  The garden is becoming more and more productive but I'm worried about my sunflower production.  I have a bit of a gap between the plantings so I wont have any blooming for a while after about a week or two.

I'm going to do some sowing today for the hoop house this fall.  I need to finish up the weeding and get the fall brassicas in the ground.  They are ready!

My hours at work are starting lesson which gives me much more time in the garden.  I could use it.  Our wedding is less than four weeks away now so there is much to do here to get the property looking nice.  After the wedding it will be nice to finally put in all the perennial beds.  I will really be able to do what I want with the property.  We will have a half acre of flowers and veggies next year, woo hoo!
