It's been a productive week. We took the market off last week because of some personal issues and used the time to plant.
I couldn't stand to waste the shallot greens so I have been working on a dipping oil for bread and I used the last of the Watermelon rind in the freezer to make a Chipotle Marmalade. Intriguing, no?
The new planting technique is doing amazingly well especially with all this rain. Here are a couple of the beds planted and filled out.
Saturday we will have our 10 year Anniversary at the market. We will be there from 8-5. Lots of extra vendors and Chestnut Brewery has brewed a special beer made with local cornmeal specially for the Market Anniversary.
Sunflower Savannah has a promotional addition ourselves. There will be available at our stand, for purchase, a cup with our logo as well as the Market's. Buy the cup for 3.00 filled
 with the best Lemonade in St. Louis and for the rest of the season, get 1.00 refills and .50 from each cup goes to the market for fundraising.
Don't forget that you can come to the market all day...bring friends and listen to music.
So I guess that's it folks,
God's Blessings on you and Yours
