Saturday - what we'll have, what we won't

Saturday we should have lots of fresh produce, but we do not expect any strawberries (sorry, the season is almost done) nor will we have tomatoes (the high tunnels don't produce enough to pick two days in a row.). Kay won't be there with pies and cakes (at left, Kay with one of her grandchildren at Friday's market), but her son Bill will be cooking up breakfast to order. Hector Troyer will be there with zucchini and squash, cabbage and broccoli. (Hector says his corn is looking good and should be ready for harvest in a couple of weeks - if the coons don't get it first.) The Lees and Vangs, and about 10 other growers are expected. There should also be honey, Redings Mill bread, plants, and a number of crafters. Bring the family, bring your neighbors to the first regular Saturday market - 9 to noon. (I'd be there by 10:30 for good selection.) The Missouri Mountain Gang is playing bluegrass most the morning.
