The first Farmers’ Market of the season was this past Saturday. Gail Hitch (left) and her daughter, Gwen Laurens (right), were working the information table. This table provides the location for a $5 coupon to be picked up by Farm Bureau Members, active duty and reserves military, veterans and spouses of veterans. The coupon can be gained once each market. They also have a dollar-for-dollar match for SNAP EBT—good only for fruits, vegetables and food producing plants. Credit and debit cards are accepted. Laurens said, “They can come and double their money and stimulate the economy.”

Kim Mickle (left) purchased Milkweed from Katrina Bush (right) during the Farmers’ Market. Milkweed is necessary for Monarch caterpillars as it is the only plant they will eat—this is why Monarch butterflies will lay their eggs on the Milkweed. The Monarch caterpillars will starve if laid on any other plant. Last season, Mickle grew Milkweed and kept caterpillars in her home in a shoebox. Once they transformed into butterflies, she released them. Mickle plans to do the same again as a lot of the natural Milkweed in the Fayette County area has been destroyed and she’s noticed a decline in the butterflies.
