Farmers Market Day






Today, as most Saturdays for us, we trekked to the farmers market. I was thrilled to see that sunflowers had arrived by the buckets full. This celery looked and smelled specially good and reminded me that I had delicious chicken stock in the freezer that would be a good beginning to some soup with this celery and the carrots.
I can't pass up a blueberry. I'm crazy about them but usually don't keep them in the house when Amy comes to visit. She loves them, too, but is allergic to them.
I had my first peach of the season, bought my first cucumber, missed the purple cauliflower again, but was promised one next week.
Now, why do I try to grow basil, with limited results I might add, when I can buy this for a dollar?
A woman from Indiana brings plants and these sweet bouquets in Dixie cups. They usually last all week! A whole lot of happy in a little Dixie cup.

I hope you always post about your weekly trips to FM. Do you know the names of the pink dixie cup flowers? Sorry about Amy and blueberries. I can smell the soup way up here!

Well, I hope we have as much at our market tomorrow. It has been a slow start. I miss our flower vendor who did the dixie cups for 4 bucks. She's only doing weekend markets now and is at the St. Matthews market only. We have a market here at U of L on Thursdays now so I can go twice in one week if I want.

Should I dare say my dixie cup of flowers is 2.50? She went up from 2.00 last year (or maybe it was the year before). I hope to be at your market tomorrow. Also hoping for a "Sue" sighting!
