getting warmer now…

Well the sun was out for a while yesterday and it actually felt quite warm-ish. Then rained hard all night. Again. There is a lot of water on the fields. All the drainage is working hard but lots of it will sit there until the frost comes out of the ground.

If you are looking for some tasty Helmer potatoes in April, head to Alta Bistro in Whistler or 200 degrees bakery in Function.

We are making our summer market plans. We will be at Trout Lake and Kits markets on the following dates:

July 22, 23

Aug. 5, 6

Aug. 26,27

We'll be at the Friday afternoon Pemberton market as soon as we have something to sell in mid-July.

Slow Food Cycle Sunday is August 20. In addition to all the potatoes you want, we'll also have Rootdown Farm and Four Beat Farm in attendance with produce and the workhorses, Alice and Ferguson. Non vegetable fare will be available from The Flour Pot. Note that the Pemberton Meadows Road will be closed to non-farm vehicle traffic that day from 10-2 to make room for thousands of bikes!
