Working hard - finishing up first coop

Hello Everyone. 

It sure has been a hot and wet summer in central Virginia. I'm about to start my next big transplanting of vegetables. I have lots of basil to harvest and plan to do a pesto basil sauce. I'm hoping to pair up with an already established cook with a certified commercial kitchen. 

I've been invited to the Richmond Defense Center Farmers Market. It's free so it's hard to turn down. Usually there's market fee. So I need some produce to bring. Anyone want some tomatoes? They are finally coming in so soon with a lot of lettuce too I'm planning to become the salad king. 

For those that have visited this gigantic construction mess in front has finally been cleared! Yeah! Park your car anywhere.

I just recently had the kickstarter farm lunch last Saturday. What a great success! Just wish more showed!!! I plan to do some more events down the road with cheese, wine, and tomato tastings.

Want to know what a farmer's dinner looks like? 

This is what I grilled last night - tomatoes & basil sandwich, yellow squash, and eggplant plus sweet pickles I made. Overly healthy. When I start making some money I'll throw some hotdogs on the grill too! ha ha ha. 

About to commence work on chicken coop two. A lot of work. I hope I can get all the chicken manure out in time to till and plant for some fall crops to sell.

In the news - I'm getting a full feature article on my company in the Virginia Farm Bureau so if you get that or have access to one await for my story. Hopefully it's smashing and draws more business my way.

Until next time or stop by and say hello and leave with some tomatoes,

Paul
