I'm taking a little more time off this week. So nice to have people I can depend on to help out at the markets while I'm gone. Big shout out to Theresa Burks and Erin Matthews for holding down the fort at Manakin. Nothing like a little time on the water to rest and rejuvenate! I was able to visit a little weekday market in Mineral this week and get some delicious local goodies. Alas, I miss the farm and the fresh eggs from my hens.

September is a great time to start new projects and gear up for fall. I've got a few things up my sleeve. Hope you take advantage of our Pop-up canning class...that may be the last one this season!

See you at the market, or in the kitchen!
