Old Weatherford, Texas
We finish Market Week with this picture from the Weatherford Farmer's Market. The picture was taken in 1939. It looks like at this market, people sold from the back of their truck. I look for Farmer's Markets to make a bigger come back. The food is much better right out of the field, and it is a nicer shopping experience.
OK, project greenhouse has pretty much been on hold this week. I am waiting to get the holes drilled for the ground stakes. It takes a big drilling truck, and the operator can't dig if it is raining, due to lightening risks. Well, it has rained all week. Living in dry West Texas, it almost never rains . . . until I try to build something. When we built out house, it was the rainiest summer on record. Perhaps the farmers should pay me to build things . . . would guarantee them rain. I have pretty much done all I can until the holes get drilled. I have pretty much assembled all the heating and cooling components in the garage, so, I sit and wait for clear weather.
