Great to have a Saturday without a market!

Lying in bed until 6.30 on a Saturday seems like luxury. Usually I'm up at five getting ready for a farmers' market.
But it's a short-lived luxury. I have to rotary hoe the rest of our garlic patch today to get next season's crop planted (that's before I start collecting today's eggs).
And tomorrow (Sunday) will be a 5am start anyway as I'm doing a market at Pakenham Racecourse - where the old Pakenham Farmers' Market used to be. It wll be interesting to see if many of the old customers turn up there as heaps of them haven't gone to the new venue at the Cultural Centre in Pakenham.
The general consensus amongst stallholders and customers seems to be that it was a mistake to change the venue.
