Farming in Palmer August 11th, 2009

Categories: Seasons

As mid-August looms in the near future, farmers around Palmer are extremely busy!

You can find fresh produce at the Friday Flings, Farmers Market at “The Store” in the Butte every day from 1-6, and some right off the farms.

People are working hard to grow that giant produce the Matanuska Susitna Valley is famous for! I helped some relatives of mine with their garden recently and noticed they have a huge cabbage surrounded by a couple layers of fencing. It just might prove to be some competition in the Giant Cabbage Weighoff at the Alaska State Fair in a couple weeks!

 I drove around the outskirts of Palmer today and took some photos and ‘watched the grass grow’. Here’s what I saw.
