Organic Vegetables

Good morning from a cool but clearing morning here in Hastings.  The best kind of weather – it rains during the night and then it clears up for the day.  And it was heavy rain, which is desperately needed.  All is good.

Anyway, on Sundays I go down to Otane to the market there.  Sales are definitely picking up for me, which is great.  I am the Social Media Queen.  This means I go around to all the stalls and take photos to post on our Facebook page.  Thanks to this the visitor numbers have increased.  Also I have EFTPOS facilities too, i.e. electronic funds transfer.  This was good as last week the market’s own machine went down.  So after doing all this I have to transfer the money over to the other stall holders.

Taking photos of the stalls is a tricky business.  The stall holders themselves do not want their photos taken.  So it is a matter of arranging the composition a bit more creatively – i.e. taking photos on an angle or such like.  I do take my big camera with me, but I generally use my cellphone so I can post directly to Facebook.

Soooo, one of the stalls sells certified GE Free, organic vegetables at a very reasonable cost.  Andrew, the stall holder is rough and ready, very rural and he arranges his stall in a very rustic manner.  As you can see in this photo (edited in Pixlr of course). Last week it actually snowed a little. And Andrew ended up inside as he had had enough of the freezing winds. So that when I took this photo it was soft and nostalgic looking with the light filtering through the window.
