Farmer's Market Day

I'm a little late on the Farmer's Market Day blog, but I thought I would recap it.  Despite showing up a bit earlier for me, most of the cherries and whatnot got bought, so I had to skip that.  Instead, I picked up a small bit of salad to supplement the lettuce I'm getting from the garden, broccoli, potatoes, kale, cheese, butter, sugar snap peas, regular peas, cucumber and carrots. 

The heat has taken a hit on the garden.  Everything except the lettuce and herbs looks wilted, although the sugar snap peas are coming in.  The beans still haven't grown much, nor has the eggplant.  I've been trying to water every day, but it's an uphill battle.  Our humidity is around 20%. 

Next year I'm thinking the chicken poo composted will make a huge difference.  Right now, I need to stir it up a bit and try to get it to compost better.  I've been thinking about the cold frames and how I need to start planting stuff in August into them, but I think I'll need to get some compost into it.

Still no eggs from the chickens.  That should change, I should think.
