So proud to be here!!!

What a fun place! I'm planning a Tom and Evan and Tillie Trip soon, and found just the right Mema surprise: A early Halloween pumpkin for the boys favorite time of the year.

In our family, we start Halloween celebrations when the first walnut falls.

Here's what's at the Farmer's Market today at 8:31amCT:
  • Darrell Bunnell, Coview Farms, Coburg, KY: FARM FRESH EGGS. Cherry Tomatoes. Yellow Tomatoes. Yellow Squash. Purple Eggplant. Melons.
  • Caitlyn Bunnell, Coview Farms, Coburg, KY: White Bread. Wheat Bread. Zucchini Bread.
  • Kevin Thiery, Edmonton RD, Columbia, KY: Tomatoes, big ones. Tomatoes, cherry ones. Okra. And More
  • Jeff Scott, Antioch, KY: No sign of him or Henrietta today. Heck! Wanted to say Hi the him and see or send word to his wife, a hero of mine. You know, behind every great orchard man, there's a great woman.
  • Margie Rooks, Sano, KY: Pumpkins. Yellow and Green Peppers. Butternut Squash. Acorn Squash. Hot Banana Peppers. Cayenne Peppers. Watermelons. Gourds.
And much, much more, too numerous for the weekend Farmers Market reporter to list everything. Besides, I'm too busy shopping. Y'all come on out. The great Adair County fresh food is the big thing. But the bonuses make it special: It's fun to talk with buddies who gather here to talk as much as do business, just like we do at the Columbia Post Office.

And it's worth it just to take a look at the college from Fairground Street, to see the grand new office corner Jackie (Dean Jacquelyn Montgomer. -editor), has, with the best view in Adair County. And to steal a look at the names on the front of the nursing building, honoring one of the all time great Adair Countians and his wife. Won't spoil the announcement, cause this is big! (But bring a pair of binoculars and see for yourself, before you read it on CM)

And, of course, it's worth to taste the foods I buy here after my mother works the same magic with it she did when I was a small child in Sulphur Well. And to hear my first husband say, the way he say's his Dad used to say, "That's the best tomatoes I ever ate. They'd take the premium at the Adair County Fair."

.It's a Thanks for the Morning Day. A special one for me. I get to be with Mom. Be in Columbia all day. Be here for both Chimes Times downtown. Most days, I have to hurry to get to the Square in time for the 5 o'clock playing - a great time, though I sometimes have to pull over when my eyes mist.

Anyway. Do come out to the Farmers Market. It's such an asset to our community.
