This new venture means we won't be able to make it to the SEKGA sale, and I hate that. We had really been looking forward to it. We had a blast there last year. The kids enjoyed Go Fish Georgia, and it was just a really fun sale with a lot of nice people. I wish it were a few weeks later into the summer, but it is what it is, and we have work and tomatoes to handle. There are a couple of does for sale that would blend rather nicely with our bucks, but such is not to be. I also hate that we are missing the opportunity for fresh ripe Georgia peaches. There's a stand in Walnut Cove that says it has S.C. and Georgia peaches, but I stopped and took a look at the pathetic imposters. They felt akin to little baseballs - not a good sign for a tasty peach. I passed on the disappointing little orbs, and left quite unsatisfied.

If anyone feels rather generous, pick me up a couple of does at the sale and with any luck, we'll have a mess of tomatoes we can trade later this summer. At least, I hope so. I guess I'll just be satisfied if we have ANY tomatoes to peddle this summer at the Farmer's Market. I'm not even going to worry about how I'm going to manage three kids at the Farmer's Market yet. I have a little more than a week of school left with students, so I won't have time to take a breath until that's done. I can't believe the school year is almost over. When I first started the year I'd not have believed I would say this, but I'm going to miss those characters. They are irreverently funny, unconventionally smart, and worldly-wise, yet so innocent, and so very, very resilient. Hopefully, I'll get to work with them again in the fall.
