For future reference, here is the infamous three-way stop (and I use that term loosely) to which I refer on occasion, and our little market at the far side:
You can see we have a primo spot for watching all the fun and bumper-cars!
And from a veggie standpoint, summer is in full swing! Farmer Mike had eggplants galore:
And he also had more of those humongous yummy blackberries:
I had a box for sustenance during the market, and got more to take home with me. And my CSA share included peaches, apricots and plums. I had to eat a few right away ... so juicy!
And the highlight of my day was when this little guy rode in on his owner's shoulder:
He was too cute! He cannot fly, because his wings are clipped. His owner put him down on the table for this picture (guess he was camera-shy!) The bird let me pet him, but he would not get on my hand or let me pick him up. His owner said he will only go to him. It was really neat to watch, too! As soon as the guy put out his hand, the bird spread its wings and hopped up and down with excitement, then went back up on his owner's shoulder for the ride home. And I had to ask: He is 4, and they live about 30 years. Isn't he handsome?!?!?
I am off to finish getting ready for The Ladies to arrive for today's workshops. Definitely need some caffeine to kick-start the old heart and to keep my eyes open! Have a good day, and stay cool!
