Crazy Days at the Farmers Market!

It's Crazy Days in downtown Laramie. The little shops have their booths and ballons set up to sell their wares. So come down gets some good deals along with your veggies.

Yesterday was a blast at the farm. My Aunt Barbie and her grandson Miles are here from Brookings, SD and Ricky's good friend Tommy (UW Alumni) from Riverton drove down to help pick at the farm. My sister Sony was there and my mom, Sheila Bird, made a fabulous lunch for the troops. Sarah and Nick came down with us from Laramie.

We picked, picked, picked all day. It was hot but with a nice breeze. We had our two dogs Gabby and Kuma, my sisters two dogs, Selah and Tucker, mom's border collie Mesa and Aunt Barbies sheltie, Diego playing in thier swimming pool.

We brought a lot of yummy things up for you...but no tomatoes, green beans, chili peppers, or eggplant till next week. Oh and patty pan summer squash too. But here is what we will have:

fresh basil, broccoli, red and green cabbage (we can always cut them smaller for you too), kale, chard, collard greens, yellow zucchini squash, some cucumbers so come early, fennel, limited amount of romaine and green leaf lettuce (it's getting to hot for them), yukon and red potatoes, radishes, walla walla and sisku sweet onions, baby pearl grilling onions, carrots, chiogga beets (red and white strip bulleyes middle), spinach, and some fresh herbs parsley, dill and cilantro.

We hope to see you there. Next week we'll have a large amount of green and yellow wax beans, cucumbers, and different varieties of summer squash. Tomatoes if we can keep the birds out of them. We've purchased some plastic toy snakes from Scott at Atmosphere as we don't want to use netting because the birds get hung up in them. But we have a lot of different varieties of tomatoes so check back.

Thank you for supporting our local farm. We grow in Waverly so that we can bring more to you but we live, shop and eat in Laramie so the money stays here in our local area. Thank you for supporting chemical-free, sustainably grown agriculture as it's better for you, your family and our environment.
