Market Report for May 19, 2017

What a cold rainy, gloomy Friday night this third week of the Toledo Farmers' Market was. The weather didn't stop the six vendors from coming to the Toledo Farmers' Market or the Tama County Cattleman from attending the market.

Complements of the State Bank of Toledo, the Tama County Cattleman grilled hamburgers for the first 500 attendees. I would guess they served about 100. Thanks to the State Bank of Toledo for a delicious hot hamburger sandwich.

Dawn had houseplants, asparagus, rhubarb, and radishes.

Joe and Barb brought radishes, asparagus, pies, cookies, granola, crisp, brownies, and breads.

Janet came back with eggs, cookies, pecan rolls, breads and these cute little chocolate bundt cakes.

I do hope warm weather is in the horizon soon. We need to turn up the heat just a little bit.

Here are a few tid bits from the old farmer's almanac.

There are lots of coffee drinkers out there, did you know to recycle those coffee grounds by working them into the soil where you intend to plant carrots This helps repel root maggots and to provide nitrogen. I am sure with this cold weather the coffee consumption has increase to stay warm. Recycle those grounds.

The next time you see a poppy blooming remember there are 900,000 poppy seeds in one pound. Wow, that's a lot of poppies.

If you want to attract a variety of butterflies and moths, plant an herb garden that includes dill, parsley, common rue, sage, and thyme.

That's all the thyme I have this week. Happy planting and lets all pray for sunshine.

See you at market.
