It was another glorious day yesterday, and no, I'll never get tired of it.
Fall is definitely in the air! Farmer Mike had his painted gourds for sale:
And he even sold a few! :)
Let's get started on the veggies du jour. First up, sweet peppers:
What's left of the field 'maters:
... as far as the eye can see.
Farmer Mike: "You need any mustard greens today?"
Green beans (out of focus, sorry):
And squash - lots of squash:
The flower peeps were quite popular. Here's some Salvia:
... and Celosia:
Something bright yellow:
... and some milk weed we all know and love as MONKEY BALLS:
Some pretty orange:
and more mums:
Some more pretty orange:
(Apparently I'm drawn to color.)
Some Swiss chard:
... and brussel sprouts, still on the stalk! -->
It was so much fun to see people holding these things as they walked around - it's not like they fit nicely in a bag. :) Here's mine:
We had some beets (again with the orange):
... and some pretty bell peppers:
Some cool little gourds:
... and pumpkins:
These are for cooking, not carving. They are heavier for their size than carving pumpkins. Farmer Mike told me so, so it must be true.
Then I went back to the gourds and tried for some close-ups of the bumpy ones:
These are my flowers this week:
They said this is the last gasp for the flowers, so we don't expect much more this season. ;(
Oh, before I forget - bread:
... and pies:
... across from me. All.day.long. It's such torture.
Then I got bored (things were kinda slow), so I thought I'd show you some MONKEY BALLS up close and personal:
And then we had a little visitor:
I spent some time chasing him with my camera - he kept switching sides - so I could get him with his wings open:
He was really into that blue flower, so I could get pretty close to him ...
Okay, moving on to some doggies ... Check out this guy's hoodie:
This pic is too dark, but you can see the whole hoodie. So cute:
[Sudden change in topic.] I looked across the street and saw this spidey:
Okay, back to the dogs. This guy saw something interesting:
Hi, guys! How about a sniff?
Why, hello there:
Hey, buddy - your ears are standing up. Let me check that out:
Then we had a visit from a real princess:
Oh, more doggies: Three wiener dogs:
Then I got bored again and took this pic of a flower up close:
... and this one:
... and this one:
And THEN, o.m.g, I found the bakery had these humongous macaroons:
Like small muffins. Solid coconut. I got two. SO good.
To close out our show, I bring you an orange stink bug:
There was a green one, too, but I couldn't get an in-focus shot of him. All our stink bugs are brown, but Farmer Mike has colorful ones.
[ETA: I hit enter and this published before I could finish. ;/]
That's it. Only two more markets for me this year. Sad, I know. I have two shows in Nov, then one in Dec and I'm done for the season. I'll have to think of something else to post. Hmm, maybe I could make some cards this winter.
Thanks for stopping by!
