No More 326 Community Market: Done for the Winter!
I've had a great run at the 326 Community Market this year.
They're still open through the winter; however, much of what I sell in my nursery doesn't display well during the cold season so I'm calling it quits for now.
I mean, just imagine:
ME: "Hi, ma'am, how are you today?"
POTENTIAL CUSTOMER: "Fine. What are you selling? Sticks in pots?"
ME: "Yes. A great selection. This stick is a pear tree... this one is a Japanese persimmon. Over here, I have peach and nectarine sticks."
POTENTIAL CUSTOMER: "I have sticks at home."
ME: "But these sticks will turn into fruit trees in spring."
POTENTIAL CUSTOMER: "What are those trays of little green plants?"
ME: "Various rare perennial vegetables."
POTENTIAL CUSTOMER: "Can I plant them in the winter?"
POTENTIAL CUSTOMER: "I'm going to another booth."
ME: "No - please stay."
POTENTIAL CUSTOMER: (starts to walk away) "I'm going."
ME: "You have pretty eyes!!! And a nice sweater!!!"
POTENTIAL CUSTOMER: (moving away quicker) "GOODBYE!"
ME: "WAIT! I have cassava! You can plant those in JUST four months!!! WAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTT!!!!!"
This just isn't a good time of year to be a nurseryman. I'm going to spend the next couple of months improving my homestead's infrastructure and finishing my new book on composting.
That said, I'm still going to be hitting the market to buy eggs, fruit and honey. Stop on by and support the local community.
