Farmers Market Saturdays

This is not a farmer's market, but something I thought was really fun (and speaks to the earth-girl in me.)  This is a little peek at the community garden being blessed by the gardeners before planting.  I do speak to my garden, whether it's blessing the seeds before I plant them, greeting the new shoots, or saying many thanks as I harvest.  I think it's so great that a community does this for it's gardens too!

In case you are in this area - Floyd, Virginia does also have a farmers market.  It's held every Saturday, 8am to noon, until mid-October.

That is so great. Thanks for sharing this. I'd love to join one of those. The only community garden I know of around here is run by Yuppies and they are super-protective (which is good) but also do not welcome what they consider 'outsiders'. I'm an outsider because I am too old for them.

I love Floyd, VA; an uber cool community with vision. Sadly they are 3 hours South. =(

Blessing the garden is such a positive thing to do. And receiving it's harvests in gratitude is equally important. We "reap what we sow" is true in so many ways!

Trying to keep the squirrels from stealing all the fruit from my nectarine and fig trees is another story entirely however...ha! :o)
