The beauty of meeting people, going places and learning food. Al in once place.
Carol Ann is one of those 2 million real farmers. She not only knows and studies the land where she proudly grows real food, she teaches and takes under her wing future farmers with respect for the profession. They work hard–every day, in every weather condition. They wish for rain and worry about frost. But they love their job and do it well. I am so grateful for that!
And then, once the produce is ready to be harvest, all their hard work is displayed. Beautiful bunches of vegetables are perfectly arranged at Boggy Creek Farmer’s market.
Patient chefs wait in line to be the first buyers. Moms and dads rush in and out during their busy morning until every single vegetable is sold. And I mean everything! I am grateful for that too!
Carol Ann blooms on market days. Wednesday and Saturdays are the days where her hard work is pays off. I imagine it would be like having an art show and knowing every single piece was sold. Pretty cool!
