Oh, Joan! Only you would do the research for my question! You're so precious. Looks like no consensus. I'll stick to no apostrophe.

Spud, we got 2" of rain two days ago, flooding fields and yards. Farmers and gardeners won't be able to harvest for awhile. I don't mind--farmers do.

Attractive flowers, Bertold.

Randy, I don't know the answer to your question about "apostrophe in 'farmers'". This is what I found: 

Check grammar for ”I'm going to give persimmons to sell at the farmers market.”

Nice picture of you Randy.

It finally rained here.  0.08 inch yesterday morning and 0.24 inch last night, with more in the forecast.  Of course, it comes with cold weather.

No freezing temperatures yet, but it did get close enough a week ago to nip a few of the leaves on my tomato plants.  Tomatoes are still green and probably won't get ripe before frost hits.  Hope to have enough ambition to plant them earlier next year.

Daniel, thank Ning for the translation! Cool to now know what it says. I was surprised to read many signs written in English throughout China. Case in point: I didn't eat their dumplings, however.

What I did eat was catfish last night. A local restaurant specializes in deep fried foods, typical midwestern unhealthy food. Little wonder my 3 brother cousins are all obese:

That's me in front.

Thanks Bertold. I may have to try your recipe. 

I usually make persimmon pudding each Thanksgiving. Even my persimmon hating SIL likes it.

On one of my walks, I found coon poop with persimmon seeds. I was far far away from my house and wonder where the tree is. Surely not mine.

And no, Daniel, I didn't buy or eat any of the Chinese persimmons. Could you have Ning translate the sign?

I'm going to give SIL Nate persimmons to sell at the farmers market. (Correct me if there's supposed to be an apostrophe in "farmers".) I'm curious as to whether people will buy them.

When I was in China a year ago, I saw a vendor hawking nothing but persimmons. I'll see if I can find my photo of it. Yes!

Yes, Daniel, nice looking cosmos. I used to have them, but no more for some reason.

My persimmon trees are loaded, and quite a few persimmons have dropped already. Most won't be ready for another month.

Joan, the farm kids have made some serious decisions and are feeling a little bit more optimistic. I helped Sunday harvest their sweet potatoes (yes, they even work on Sundays.). Many were chewed on by voles which ruins them for market. Others were football sized, also unsellable as a rule. I haven't dug mine up yet.
