I took a bunch of tomatoes and some onions up to sell at the new produce market up the street. They bought everything I had though were wondering how the blacks would sell.
Well I went by today to get some corn and they were happy to tell me everything sold and pretty quickly. The onions went the fastest, they were Candy. All the tom's sold as well, they even had a few coming back for more. One guy fell in love with my Spudakee's and wants more, even asking them to plant some next year.
Now wait a minute that is my tomato I will grow it and sell them they don't need to plant their own.
Well I'm surprised they all sold so fast knowing how most people want the perfect red, perfect round tomatoes only. I am glad though they weren't stuck with them. They even said they tried a few and even though she didn't want to look at them they were amazingly tasty. I told them in the first place I wouldn't bring them junk tomatoes, that these were some of the best of the best varitety's. I think they were pleasantly surprised and she wants me to bring up some more spudakee.
This is my first taste of the market garden life. Something I would really like to do someday. Even my wife is working hard so she can be the bread winner and me the farmer. She even said this morning I need to enlarge my latest garden plot. Enough said.
Look out DDF and you other market gardeners I'm coming.
