Over the weekend I was able to visit my dear friend Meika. who has a family Shiitake Farm up in Rumford, Maine. For the past few Septembers I have joined them at the Common Ground Country Fair (which if you have never been, I would encourage the road trip!) to sell fried shiitake mushrooms. This year I was able to participate in the annual planting of the logs and even got a few to take home! I can't wait to see what happens!
The seeds planted from last week are up and while the weather outside hasn't been the most conducive to growing, these little ones are reaching for the sunlight up behind the clouds!
I had a surprise opportunity to sell some spinach and onions at the Tamworth Farmers' Market on Saturday. The onions I have been holding on to since last fall, they were the most beautiful onions I have ever grown, and I am very proud of them. I have to admit I was a little sad to see them go as I have been lugging them around the state all winter, sharing them with friends and making lots of yummy meals. It was very fun to get to participate in my first market on my own and meet lots of folks in the community. Thank you to everyone who came out!
