No Farm, No Food

On my way back from an inspection in Leesburg yesterday morning, I passed by the Burnside Farm stand.  I happened to see a young woman putting plants on the table and I decided to make a u-turn and check it out.
The young woman was Katie, whom I had spoken to about buying eggs about a month ago.  She was busy getting the stand ready by uncovering the plants.  It had been a rough couple of days due to the heavy winds and rain that we had.

I belong to a Fauquier County group on Yahoo and somebody was looking for Stepables.  When I first read that I had no idea what they were talking about. I know.  I wonder if they would grow in front of my trailer where the ground is bare.   I'll have to ask the next time I stop by.

The colors were breath taking. :)

Inside the green house.  Lots of sprouting going on.  When I walked in, it was like getting hit by a cloud of perfume.

Hard to believe that we were under three foot of snow a little over a month ago.

Burnside Farm is located at:
4905 James Madison Hwy
Haymarket, VA 20169

If you have any questions, give Katie a call at:

See you soon, Katie :)

Well...time to get ready to go to Reston for another inspection.  I'm still riding around with my Poang chair in my car.  It looks like I have a buyer, but not until Saturday.


  1. You sure have that right, no farms, no food, period.


  2. Wretha...yep and I'm kind of hooked on the stuff :)

  3. All the plants are looking good. I've never heard of stepables, so I learned something new today...ha. Take care, Sheila


I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
