In addition to those things, I have to do some more preparation for the inspection to get our certificate to sell at the Golden Hill Farmer's Market. The person who encouraged me to apply to sell was kind enough to make sure that I knew I needed to have all of our plants labeled before our inspection. This makes sense but it means some work for me.
Labeling your babies is always a good idea because even in a small garden, it's easy to forget what is what. You'll probably be able to identify a pepper plant as a pepper plant, but if you want to know what variety of pepper you are anticipating, then I would suggest you label your plants well. I am not great at this, and now I have a headache, because it has to be done now.
