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.
