me in the piazza

I'm a writer, publishing both as SJ Rozan and, with Carlos Dews, as Sam Cabot. (I'm Sam, he's Cabot.) Here you can find links to my almost-daily blog posts, including the Saturday haiku I've been doing for years. BUT the blog itself has moved to my website. If you go on over there you can subscribe and you'll never miss a post. (Miss a post! A scary thought!) Also, I'll be teaching a writing workshop in Italy this summer -- come join us!

Public Service Announcement #2, on a whole different topic

As some of you know, my sister has an organic farm in Roberta, GA, about an hour from Macon. It's a CSA -- Community Supported Agriculture, for those unfamiliar with the term -- which means the farm has members who buy shares and then get shares of the produce. She also helped establish the Macon City Market on the Green. She sends periodic reports to the farm's members, and I thought I'd pass this one on in case any of youse guys are in the Macon area.


What a beautiful day it was at the Poplar Street Market this past Sat.! The number of vendors has increased, and the quality of the items they sell is phenomenal. They keep prices low, making it a great place to shop for graduation gifts, mother's and father's day gifts, birthday gifts, and more. I am not going to describe the items they create because I could never do them justice, you'll just have to go there and see for yourself. I am sure you will find something wonderful for any occasion.

We had a tasty salad mix that was colorful as well, complimenting any holiday feast with locally grown salad. Here on the farm the volunteers decorated Easter eggs for an Easter egg hunt, and the eggs were gorgeous. We took some pictures which I will try to remember to send to you.

April is a very busy month with several special events planned to celebrate Earth Day. And, this coming Sat., April 10th, the City Market on Poplar Street Green has its official Grand Opening. Entertainment will be provided by our local steel drum band, and hopefully the weather will be as perfect as it was this past Sat.

Welcome to new shareholders DeWayne and Katherine Moore!

Thank you to Sylvia & Bernard Thompson for their donation to Davis Farms! They know my aunt and uncle Hadassah and Maurice (who we named our goats after) and donated to the farm to celebrate my aunts birthday March 31st. Sylvia lived in this area and is familiar with both Macon and Roberta. What a small world it is!

Thank you to Francis & Shellie Inzer for their donation to Davis Farms also.

The shareholder fees and donations enable us to purchase materials for the farm. This week we placed an order for 7500 feet of drip tape which we will use in the field where we'll be growing most of our vegetables. It was also through donations that we were able to fence that field in with electrical fencing, to keep the hungry deer out. Today our electrician Harvey stopped by to install the repaired control box for the electric fencing around the goats and we thank him also. Last night I heard the coyotes howling so loudly they could have been in the house with me, I can rest much easier knowing Little Bean and his parents are protected by that fence.

The City Market on Poplar Street Green is YOUR LOCAL MARKET. Keep your dollars in the Macon community, support local crafts people and farmers, and enjoy some delicious home baked goods. Parking is easy, benches are plentiful, and the conversations stimulating. Come down Sat. morning from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and join the fun!
