Neither Wind, nor Rain or Hurricane...............

........will slow us down. Irene tried to ........but was not very successful. Sunday the 28th Irene helped the Brandywine Creek into SIW and manage to leave a layer of mud everywhere. With the help of a great crew, they rose to the occassion on Monday, and assembled a tent out in the parking lot to be able to service our customers while the clean-up began. We were back in the stand by Tuesday and back to full service by Wednesday.
This week we are battling the rain once again. We have plenty of corn, tomatoes, squash and zucchini. Our cooler is full with Claudio's fresh mozzarella, pesto, parmigiana, and olives; Di Bruno's various cheeses, Abruzze and Garlic and Herb cheese spreads.....and let's not forget those great Local pies and cookies for dessert.
