We had our best season ever despite a bad drought all summer and fall (but that is what drip irrigation, mulch and row cover are for). The market garden produced very well for us this season and the demand for locally raised food exploded in August and just keeps getting better. We broke one day sales records for 6 consecutive weeks which was unexpected and welcome.
We are still gardening and marketing winter crops. we do a once a month outdoor farmers market through winter (you ain't lived until you have stood in 15 degree temps with snow falling and high cutting winds whipping at you. All the while all your potatoes and winter squashes are slowing freezing to death but you won't know that until the next day when everything is showing bad signs of freeze damage). We also are selling produce to folks at the farm where we get raw milk and today have two people coming out to the farm to buy food. one is the private chef to the president of Miami university (my alma mater) and wants to use our food more often for the presidents dinner parties. This University president is new and very green.
