The Soap Tribune, Issue #204--Memorial Day is for picnics
May 27, 2023

Farmers Market

Memorial Day weekend is a time for travel. Come to The Ithaca Farmers Market and go for a boat ride on the Cayuga Inlet out to the lake. The bird watching is fantastic.

Spinaches and Spring baby greens will soon be ending. Lettuces of all kinds, shapes, and colors will fill up the market, as groceries and in the lunch selections.

Planning a barbecue? Our farmers raise some of the most delicious meat for your grilling pleasures. Pork, beef, bison, goat, and fresh never frozen chicken. Our farmers raise happy healthy animals. It makes a difference.

Visit us in booth 6 to stock up on your soap supply. You'll need garden soap and Instant Liquid Soap to hand wash your dishes from your bbq party. Ithaca Farmers Market hours through Oct. 29, 2023, at Steamboat Landing are:

Saturdays 9-3pm Sundays 10-3pm

We are developing a nice egg following. We do not bring a whole lot of eggs to the market and we sold out last week!

It's the unofficial start of Summer. You can now wear pastel colored and white clothing and be in season.

It's time to fire up the barbecue, plant your heat loving Summer garden plants, and travel a bit.

It's also University graduations around the US. In your travels, remember to support your small businesses and eat local.

Here in New England, gardeners race to put in their gardens to maximize the season.

Time to plant your garden

I got some row cover to put my seedlings out early this year and I'm having great success. Row cover can raise your covered garden beds by up to 4 degrees. It doesn't sound like much but it's a huge difference when the temps dip below 40 outside of your seedlings little hoop house.

If you haven't already started your garden, it's not too late. You can pick up seedlings at your local farmers market or farm and garden supply store, and get those soon to be groceries, in the ground. Nothing is more gratifying, than picking the freshest food available right outside your kitchen.

I wear gloves when I garden. When I plant seeds, I take the gloves off and my hands may actually get dirty. I always wash my hands when I go back in the house before I do anything inside.

Our Tough Guy pumice soap is a great gardener's soap. It gently scrubs your hands, leaving them soft and clean after the work of planting your garden.
