|Here's our sign on the basement floor.|
|Same sign being hoisted up.|
At least the sign was up for the third day of our farm market. The little slat below it says "FRESH BREAD" but, as you can see, that also did a disappearing act. Much like the freshly baked bread on the table did!
Starting our farm market is a family adventure. In the end, I guess it's all about the kids. As a parent, you pass on a love of food, family, and friends, and show the lasting value in keeping the old friends while making new friends along the way. It is hard but honest work. Eventually they'll understand that our meaningful connections with the land and with people define us all, and they'll cherish each unique piece of the whole puzzle.

I think one slat on our farm market sign should say:
Life is an adventure. Live (and eat) well.
Farming. It's not a spectator sport.
What do you think?
