Farmers market in Richmond plans special Saturday

BALDWIN — Hello from Baldwin,

How is everyone’s week going? I hope everyone is having a great one. How about this cooler weather we have been having? Isn’t it great? I know it isn’t like our summer weather is supposed to be, but I do love it.

Happy birthday wishes go out this week to Jayden Brooke Burrus, Friday, and Blake Curtis, Saturday. I hope you both have happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Carroll Perkins, Janet Murphy, Mary Jane Ginter and a very special young lady who will be celebrating her fourth birthday, Miss Abigail Long, Tuesday, and Jo Marie Lane, Saturday.  I hope that you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.

Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Gene and Wilma Hall, Monday; Bill and Lori Winter, Wednesday; and my brother and sister-in-law, Wesley and Debbie Jones, Saturday.  Wes and Debbie will be celebrating their 40th anniversary.  I hope you all have very happy anniversaries and many more happy ones to come.

Don’t forget to drop by the Madison County Farmers Market on EKU’s Campus on Park Drive from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. There will lots of locally grown farm fresh produce there. Hope to see you there!!

The Madison County Farmers Market is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays in the Lowe’s parking lot, 8 a.m. till noon. On Saturday, there are going to be some extra activities going on. The Madison County Extension Office and Homemakers will be there cooking and other activities going on. Plus there will be locally grown farm fresh produce, bread jams, jellies and honey.  Homegrown tomatoes are a hot commodity right now; you can even get canning tomatoes. You know you can get farm-raised beef at the market, now you can get pork. Just be sure and stop by, if you don’t stop by, no telling what you might miss.

I just wanted to thank everyone for all the birthday cards and phone calls I received on my birthday. I had a great birthday.

Well, I guess that’s all for now, let me know if you hear any news, just e-mail me at pljnes61@netzero.com or call at 623-4579.
