Our Market day starts with the sound of the alarm clock at 4:15….yes, A.M.! It’s still dark when the Boss arrives downtown to set up for sales. He’s the Market Manager as well, so he has a lot of work to do.
The animals are fed and watered by the light of the flashlight before I head into town as well. Making sales, keeping product stocked and answering questions coherently for the entire morning makes for a long day sometimes.
When NOON arrives and it’s time to close down the Market for the day, we’re ready. We’re very ready to get home, unpack and EAT LUNCH!
By the looks of it…
…we are not the only inhabitants of the farm thinking of food! The early morning feeding throws the animals’ internal clocks off as well. They spend the afternoon complaining…and waiting for afternoon choretime to arrive.
