What are we doing now

All the seeds are ordered now. I am glad that job is done. Looking at all those catalogs, then getting it narrowed down to the companies that have what we want, then figuring out how many to buy, just takes a toll on my brain. The onions should be here in a couple of weeks. When everything gets here we will be getting the hanging basket, veggie seeds and onions planted. Just thinking about all that planting makes me tired.

MFMA annual meeting

The annual MFMA meeting was held Saturday Jan.23, 2010 at the Drury University in Cabool, Mo. We had excellent speakers and an excellent turnout and excellent food. Daniel Boykin catered the food for the meeting. There were 60 + people in attendance. The Cabool Area Farmers Market had the privilege and honor of hosting the event, which would not have been possible if it wasn't for our sponsor Cabool State Bank. I forgot to take my camera so I have no pictures, but if Eileen sends me some of hers I will post them. The Cabool Market had several items and baskets that they gave away. The winner of the big basket wanted to have a silent auction and then give the proceeds to Set Free Ministries in Cabool. Then the winner of the silent auction wanted to give the basket to Set Free Ministries as well. There are wonderful people in the world today. We hope everyone had a good time and learned some things as well.

Meetings and Conferences

Getting ready for and going to the different meeting and conferences. Dad and Mom are in St. Joseph at the Great Plains Vegetable Growers Conference. I didn't make it due to the weather. Dad and Mom went up on Thursday morning before it got to terribly bad.
Then next week they will be in Nebraska City for the Mid America Fruit Growers Conference.
