Valley City Farmers Market Beginning Soon!

Just wanted to let everyone know that the first Valley City Farmers Market of the year is going to be on Saturday June 9th, starting at 9a.m. to 12p.m.  It will be located at it's normal location at Liverpool Township Depot, 6615 Center Road in Valley City, Ohio.

I can not believe that market time is almost here, time just flies.  Anyhow for the first market I should have available a variety of my salad mixes, mustard green bunches, kale bunches, radishes, scallions, and maybe some beets, turnips, kohlrabi, peas and possibly some other things.  Of course I plan to have some kinds of bread available, not sure exactly what yet.  I also hope to make some dog treats, and maybe some other new surprises.  I will be sure to post here what exactly we will have available before the market starts.

Pictures - Cold Crops Planted

Here are a couple pictures of some of what I have planted so far.

To the far left (in the above picture) I have a bunch of stuff that I started by seed, including peas, turnips, beets, radishes, and carrots, there is also a row of onions.  The row that is almost in the middle of the picture are cabbage, broccoli and some cauliflower plants.  Under the row cover I have mustard greens and kale.  I covered them with the row cover to protect the plants from bugs and deer.  Then to the far right you can see some of my garlic.

What I planted from seed was kind of slow coming up for a while, since I planted it just before we had some cold weather.  Luckily it was cold but not wet if the ground would have been wet the seeds probably would have rotted, but they are coming up good now, so hopefully I should be alright.

I have all my lettuces planted elsewhere at home, once everything gets bigger and picture worthy I will post a picture of my lettuce area.

Grey Treefrog

So I did a little searching online and I believe the frog below that I posted a picture of is a grey treefrog.  I guess these guys are the largest treefrogs in Ohio.  They are also able to change colors to many different shades of  grey, brown, green and black.

Here is a good site with a bunch of info on these guys:
