It has been an interesting year. I hope you are doing well.
I’ve been doing the Farmers Markets and trying to put together the Nutcracker Holiday Gift Show.
This Saturday is the last Farmers Market for me at Redmond Saturday Market.
The Nutcracker Holiday Gift Show http://www.nutcrackerholidaygiftshow.com opens on November 6th. We’ve got some fantastic Crafters, Artists and Specialty Food Makers and we are following all the COVID rules, so please come on out and BUY LOCAL for your Holiday Gifts this year!
Update: I will not be at the Coupeville Farmers Market tomorrow, but should be back next week. I will however be on Whidbey Island tomorrow, so if you need jam I can deliver it to your home. Please order today!!
I will be delivering to Redmond and surrounding areas on Tuesday, April 28th! Please order by 7pm on Monday!!
For all my customers: Thanks for your support! It has been very much appreciated!
Yesterday I made my first home deliveries in the Redmond area (thanks so much for all that ordered!). I will continue delivering every other Tuesday (April 28th is the next day) until the Redmond Saturday Market opens (tentatively June 6th right now). I’m also delivering anywhere in Skagit County!
Ordering is easy: Go to the Farmers Market/Home Delivery page here and select and pay for a 2 pack or 4 pack (if you want more you may order multiples!) and then send me an email with your jam selections. I have a special price right now for home deliveries and there’s no delivery charge!
The Coupeville Farmers Market opens this Saturday – Yay!! Just as above, you may order and prepay for your jam. Then when you come to the market, I will have it bagged and ready for you! Hope to see you there!
It was a beautiful day today. Perfect for doing some planting. Yesterday I finished putting together a trellis for sugar snap peas (my favorite veggie in the garden!) and today I planted starts and sugar snap seed. Sugar snap peas like to be planted a little thick, so I spaced the starts and then added seeds in-between. I’m thinking it’s kind of like staggering a planting. Hopefully the starts will take off and then the plants from seed will be a little later – extending the season a bit.
I also planted spinach, lettuce and arugula all in the same planter (a few nasturtiums in the middle too!). I have deer, squirrels and cats that visit, so next was trying to figure out how to keep them all out of the bed! I had planned to cover the whole bed, trellis and all with row cover fabric, but it acted as a sail and almost blew over the trellis, so I opted for a make-shift fence for now anyway.
I hope you are healthy and were able to enjoy the beautiful sunshine today! Maybe you have started your garden too. I’d love to hear about it!
Now is a great time to stock up on our jams!! For the rest of March and through April our jams can be mailed directly to you at a special price. I’ve been busy in the kitchen cooking up your favorites so this is a great time to order. Check our product page here for more information and to order.
