Happy Saturday evening! It was kinda hot but mostly humid for today's farmers' market, but there was at least a nice breeze, so people were out and shopping. Let's jump right in to some pictures!
Some of those tiny watermelon(s):
Tomatillo (not tomatoes):
Someone was actually filling a huge bag with this and smiling! (I don't understand.)
and a VAT of basil:
People bought bags of these, too. (Don't get that, either.) However, I'm pondering Jerk Seasoning. Farmer Mike suggested I wait until he has some dried peppers on hand. Hmmm, must investigate options.
Once again, these flew out of the bins today.
And tiny melon:
Some of these are palm-sized. And sweeeet. I got one that will walk if left until tomorrow. Mmmm.
(Sudden change of focus...)
The rock lady had the cutest critters! This is a gopher:
and an owl:
and, in the Crooked spirit, Flintstones' characters painted on ... wait for it ... flint stones:
Back to produce ... I sat next to Farmer Margie today and these peaches:
until I was compelled to buy some. OMG, so good.
Onions (orn-yons, with a nod to Justin Wilson):
Farmer Katie had these handsome yellow squash:
and (ugh) baby okra:
cute little tomatoes:
and lots of fruit:
and pretty Zinnias:
Over at the flower tent, I saw these:
HOT HOT HOT peppers, which is why they are ornamental.
And these, which are not daisies, but the name was a mile long and my grey matter couldn't retain the words:
I do remember they are in the Black-eyed Susan family, and look, their centers are raised up:
For a cheap thrill, hover over that picture and look at it's name (as stored on my computer). :)
and my flower arrangement:
Ready for the doggie portion of the show? For starters, here's a handsome dude:
a teeny tiny cutie:
and the Pug from last week, only from the front this time:
Okay, now for the clever idea of the day: one of our jewelers made some chandeliers for doll houses:
Isn't that a cute idea?! Think of the possibilities. Oh, and she made the blue glass beads.
And last, but not least, is the color combo du jour:
(Yeah, I know, it's out of focus, but you get the idea.) This is a scarf being made by the rock lady, and I saw lime, turquoise, tan and off-white. Look for this on a card of mine, coming soon!
Okay, that's all I have. Thanks for reading this far! And I hope to have something crafty for you Sunday!
Thanks for stopping by!
