Summer's over

Well its been a great summer here at Waterberry Farm. We stayed busy with the Farmers Market until August and then took a short break from growing in order to get the greenhouses and systems clean and ready for the Fall season.

Last week we hosted a potluck supper on the porch, as a thank you for all those that volunteered and participated in the Poplar Head Farmers Market this summer. Thanks to everyone's hard work the Market was a huge success.  A big thank-you to the First Baptist Church volunteers. They were an amazing group of people. They arrived bright and early every Saturday with smiles on their faces and worked in 100 plus degree heat without a complaint. We couldn't have done it with out the help and support of the volunteers and of course we wouldn't have a market without our farmers.Thanks to all that participated and I can't wait till next year!

It had rained most of the day but the sun came out just before everyone arrived and it was a perfect evening!
