The conference last weekend was great, and the presentation went well. Thanks all for being so flexible so I could go! And thanks, too, for those that offered to help with rain barrel movin' tomorrow before class - you guys never cease to offer help when it's needed!
We had baby Mallard ducklings hatch on Saturday. We've a few available, if anyone would like them for $5/each. No vaccines. Mom and Dad live here as 'pets', free roaming, eating along the way.
Check out the Portland Farmers Market blog where Reister's Farm was the Featured Ag vendor to tout about - check it out and meet your lamb farmers (you'll spot Rachel, Jake, or Phil at weekly deliveries in Salmon Creek)! We're glad to know you, and I'm certain everyone that has tried your lamb is lovin' it!
Check out the sale on soap. Let's get it moving so we can make room for more. We also have more laundry kits available, too - yay!
Don't forget - the stuffed mushroom contest (and your chance to win over $25 in food!) ends tomorrow. ~S
