Dampen the Crops, Not the Spirits

“Ooh – I didn’t see that big black cloud hanging over me
And when the rain came down I was nearly drowned
I didn’t know the mess I was in..” -“Heading for the Light” The Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 1 (1988)

I am not sure why the Traveling Wilburys song lyrics came to me today, but they did, and here they are. I remember nearly wearing through the cassette tape by playing that Vol. 1 release repeatedly. Great music.
The damp weather is great — for crops. It is less fine for farmers markets, but as you know, they happen rain or shine.

No spirits were dampened today in Bernardston at the weekly Tuesday Farmers Market. The customers came out — maybe just the regulars with fewer casual browsers, but the compliment of farmers were there, us included, and it was another fun day meeting and greeting.

Thursday the forecast is for more rain, and I will be setup in Northfield from 4-7, with many assorted cuts of Grassfed Belted Galloway, and a Pastured Gloucestershire Old Spots Boneless Tied Shoulder Roast. Ask about whole duck and whole chicken. If the chickens, most of whom are currently molting, cooperate, I might have between six and ten dozen eggs for sale as well.
