New Location for the New Market

OPENING DAY WILL BE JUNE 7, 2014 AT 9:00 A.M. TO NOON

LOCATION WILL BE AT THE PETERSBURG BRANCH OF THE PIKE COUNTY LIBRARY…COME ON OUT AND JOIN US! IF YOU’RE A MUSICIAN, BE SURE AND BRING YOUR INSTRUMENT AND JOIN CARRIE IN THE TUNES TENT.

Perhaps Spring Has Found Us…Time to be Thinking About Planting

I’m more than enjoying this lovely early spring day today with all its sunshine and mild breeze. In fact, I’m headed out to the greenhouse with some new pansies and three trays of seedlings that have lived under the vigil of the grow light indoors until now.  I’m declaring spring to be sprung.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS–FARMERS MARKET MEETING WILL BE APRIL 9 AT 6:00 P.M. AT LOG ENDS BED AND BREAKFAST JUST OUTSIDE OF PETERSBURG. THE ADDRESS IS 2769 W. STATE ROAD 56, PETERSBURG. IF YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT JOINING US AS A GROWER OR YOU’D JUST LIKE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW THE MARKET WORKS, PLEASE JOIN US! THE MORE THE MERRIER.
