Can you believe it? The Saints are 8-0 and there's a hurricane in the Gulf in November! We're keeping an eye on Ida but will have market tomorrow.
Kay Brandhurst just picked up shrimp from the boat in St. Bernard and the L'Hoste's and Savastano's are picking citrus down in Plaquemines Parish while it's still dry. Jim Core is in his field in Folsom, Lucy Capdeboscq is picking flowers in Amite, and we're all looking forward to seeing everyone at the market (Rain or Shine!) tomorrow morning.
