Due to a sick child I wasn't able to make the pickles as I intended. I spent plenty of time today getting prepared for the Farmer's Market which myself and a few other folks will be attending. I put together my vegetable price list and will be picking vegetables VERY early tomorrow morning.
Here are my prices for locally grown, chemical pesticide and fertilizer free, vegetables.
Mixed Summer Squashes $.50 each or 3 for $1.00
Baby beets $1.50/bunch (about 8)
Cukes 2 for $1.00
Wish me luck!
Did you know that vinegar is a natural weed killer?
I can attest to this as I have brown patches in my lawn where John created baking soda and vinegar "volcanoes" in a bottle and it overflowed onto the grass. Pour white vinegar in a spray bottle and use it in place of chemical weed killers. It doesn't persist in the environment like the chemicals do.
