What’s on my mind???
Cool waters and breezes of fall approaching… In the meantime, its Byrd House Market in August! Which I actually find MUCH better than July. Today will be lovely, breezy and bright – humidity down a bit while being a little warmish. An isolated storm here and there. Altogether a great day to head to the market to stock up or shop for tonight’s great meal, the week’s lunches… or today’s treat!
Ettamae’s returns with breads, rolls and a sundry good spread of savory pies, etc. Almadina comes back this week. Agriberry’s got some blackberry meringue, I hear (could be a rumor…). Bring your egg cartons and milk share bottles back!!! Buy a Raffle Ticket or Two or Three!
Conversely it’s also a great time to give: Our food pantry which serves families, unaccompanied adults and seniors each week, is running low on nonperishables and perishables alike. The farmlet is growing food, but not quite enough to keep up with demand. So visit our Food Pantry Wish List at http://www.wbch.org/?page_id=213 and see what you can bring to the Byrd House Market Information Tent. Thank you!
