Farmers Market Saturday

Spotted at the local farmers market yesterday:

Clever signage made with kitchen utensils:

Plump red onions:

Gorgeous Delphinium:  Mine fell to mold this year with the very wet Spring/early Summer.  I chopped it down with sadness, but was thrilled to see last week that it had grown back, bushy and healthy!

Puppy dog tails:

Tiny peppers:  (I bought a good handfull of these cuties!)

The piper:

It's definitely pepper season!

When I saw these from the other side of the market, my heart skipped a beat.  I thought they were pumpkins!  I'm not a fan of spaghetti squash, but I almost bought one of these just for decoration.

Another successful market shop.  I came home loaded down with goodies.  I had fresh bruschetta last night on organic garlic and herb baguette, all from ingredients brought home from the market - yum!

I notice that my posts this Summer are almost primarily about gardens, farmers markets and fruit stands.  I do get rather occupied by Nature's abundance this time of year!

I bought some raspberries yesterday at a farmer's market -- from BC I'm sure! The stands were loaded with BC fruit.

What a fun market! =D

And I love old pictures too... I'm always looking for hints of the person's personality peeking through... a slight smile, a cocked eyebrow, a fun pattern on their clothing... and I love to sit & stare & imagine who they were & what they were like. ^-^

Hope your Sunday is lovely & sunny!

Some of that stuff looks good enough to eat. Our squash crop was pretty much a bust this year, to much heat and no rain when we needed it. Tomatoes and beans have done good tho. X.
