Uh, oh! Winter's back, at least for today. Dutchmill was here on Friday and intends to be here on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays when weather permits, but it's too cold today!

I'm on school break, so I was able to get to the market today, so I was sorry not to see Anna's beautiful tulips, but she should be here on Wednesday.  I also heard that Maxwell's Farm will not be here and that he has retired from the market, which will disappoint his loyal customers who enjoyed his great greens, tasty tomatoes, and other delicious vegetables.
On a positive note, I'm having some of Butterfield's succulent cheddar on toast for breakfast.  Phillips has brought in pretty potted flowers and Lani is back with excellent greens and fresh black soy beans.  Race has dried beans as well as homemade soups.
