Mary had a bad accident at the farm. She will be fine and is recovering swiftly, but all messages of love and support are welcome.
CYCFM: Where Are you from?
MP: Memphis, Tennessee, y'all!
CYCFM: When and why did you begin farming?
MP: I started farming in high school. I was a particularly angsty teenager, trying to discover the meaning of life, and I decided that the meaning of life was farming. I convinced my family to let me go live on a farm in a little, tiny town near Lawrence, Kansas. I'm so glad they let me go!
CYCFM: What is your favorite crop to grow?
MP: Radishes. When everything else fails, a radish will always come through for you. It's my self-esteem crop.
CYCFM: What is your favorite dish to eat?
MP: Eggplant! But, I don't get to eat it that often, because Wes doesn't like it. I try to sneak it into stir-fries sometimes, but he still finds it. Alas!
CYCFM: How do you relax?
MP: Drink lots of wine? Am I allowed to say that?
CYCFM: What is your favorite part about the Cooper Young Community Farmers Market?
MP: We have the best farmers, vendors, customers and market manager in the world!! It's like one big family reunion every single weekend. I love it.
