Ramona Snell, who has been farming with her husband John for over 35 years says that in the 1970's the farmers market would not have had more than 50 varieties of all vegetables from all farmers put together... Tomatoes were Big Beef. Squash was Butternut. Beans were E-Z Pick. These days, that has exploded. We are growing sweet potatoes, fennel, tomatillos, and Asian greens... A lot has changed. Of course there has always been this winter work on bright cold Maine days.
Work for some of us...
