There you have the line up for the Toledo Farmers' Market on this 16th day of June.

A Happy Fathers Day to all the dads out there. I hope you enjoyed your day. And I hope you received some goodies from the Toledo Farmers' Market.

The 4th of July will soon be upon us, where has the time gone? I finished planting tomatoes finally. We put up the panels for the pole beans and the fence around the cabbage and broccoli to keep our ducks and geese out of them. They can chew a plant down in no time.

Also it is to keep those pesky chickens that some how get out and enjoy a bite out of each head of cabbage. Gotta love the farm life, I wouldn't trade it for anything. The heat had left for awhile and the windows are open to enjoy the breeze and the sounds of nature outside. Outside the window of my office is a lilac bush with a nest of birds. The chirping of the little ones waiting for their supper is a pleasant sound. Then there is the sound of the roosters competing for the loudest crow. I have to laugh though, they are young roosters so you get the one that just can't crow right yet.

One needs to sit back and reflect at the end of the day. Life is good, make it good, and enjoy it my friends.

See you at market.
