July 4th market

Great market this past Sat. We have succeeded in growing the nicest glads of yet this year. Some are as tall as me! but most are around four ft. It's so odd and amusing how with farming some years have incredible crops and some years have incredibly lame crops. For instance~ last year we had the best lisianthus ever, good enough to fool myself into thinking I could grow it well. This year it's blooming out at 6 inches tall. Last year we couldn't get a glad to bloom for the life of us, and this year they're like cutting small saplings at the base. I suppose it keeps us guessing and life interesting to know that there will always be certain successes and certain failures each year.
