On the road again…relaxing at the “Delta Queen” Hotel in Chattanooga, Tennessee. What a lovely couple of days relaxing with mom and enjoying the nostalgia of days gone by aboard the last traditional steam engine riverboat. What a memorable experience even with the ninety degree cabin, unfortunately the air condition was out in our stateroom.


I’ll be home tomorrow in plenty of time to help Kenny get ready for Wednesday’s farmers market.  We will be at the market from 4-7 under the pavilion on the corner of Bank and Market streets in beautiful New Albany, Indiana.


We will have plenty of veggies on Wednesday; new potatoes, green beans, zucchini – both green and golden, summer squash, as well as a new crop of “candy” onions,  Swiss chard, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumbers and fresh peas will also be available.  We will have tomatoes, but they are still slow in ripening; however, we should have about a bushel of red ones (that’s around 50 pounds or so if your’e wondering).


Black raspberries are still coming in strong, so we should have plenty of them available.  Kenny is picking blueberries this evening and hopes to have some to bring on Wednesday after filling the orders we already have for them.


If anyone needs produce and would like me to have ready, just e-mail me and let me know early in the day Wednesday. I will have your order ready when you arrive Wednesday evening.  Eggs will be available on Wednesday’s by request only, if you need them let me know and I will be sure to bring some for you.


Thanks and have a great day, and see you at the market!

Val & Kenny
