In addition to trying to grow vegetables, we’re spending a lot of time trying to get ready for our first farmer’s market (Thursday, June 21, in Jamaica Plain). There’s a lot of stuff to get–baskets, boxes, tables, a banner, a scale, and a tent. The tent arrived last week, and we went to a nearby empty parking lot over the weekend to see if we could put it up. It took a few tries, but we finally got it right. Now I know how to put it up all by myself, which will be very important, because most days I’ll be there solo. The tent is a standard 10’x10′ which feels pretty huge when there’s nothing but me and a scale under it. The brand is Undercover, and it feels pretty sturdy. We’ll see how it handles the first rainy/windy day.
