Market Report for September 29, 2017

This was the last market for the month of September, which means we have one month of the Toledo Farmers' Market left this season. There is still plenty of produce and bakery to be purchased before the market season is over.

Kristi had plenty of her Czech bakeries along with pumpkins, peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers.

Busy Bee Acres had chunk honey and comb honey, ever wonder how that beeswax is made. I have, its so amazing to think those little busy bees makes honey and wax.

A young worker honeybee eats lots of honey or nectar and later emits a drop of wax via one of eight glands on its underside. The wax hardens into a flake, which the bee then puts in its mandibles to chew and mix with secretions until it's workable. The beeswax is then used to build or repair honeycomb. About six to ten pounds of honey are needed for a colony to produce a pound of wax.

Interesting isn't it? Those busy little bees.

Time to start clearing the garden and getting it ready to sleep for the winter. It's so hard to pull out those last plants of the season. But it is time to get the garlic planted. So enjoy the last few warm days we will be having by working outside and clearing off the garden.

Enjoy a little of Mother Nature before Old Man Winter starts to show his face.
