Farmer's Market... finally

I finally made it to the local Farmer's Market. It was worth the trip. The Farmer's Market is open every Saturday from sun up 7:00 a.m. till I can't remember exactly about noonish.

I had been forewarned that there isn't much produce this time of year. Still, I had a great time.

Check out these apples gourds apple gourds. Apparently you can paint them and keep them as decorations or even make a bird house out of them.

Toad houses, in case you are wondering.

The local Horticulture Society had lots of plants and herbs to choose from.

This guy (not pictured) is a beekeeper and had a honey stand. Look closely at his stand for the Visa/Master Card sign. These guys take credit cards. Who knew?

Bro had to have his blood drawn today so mommy got him an oatmeal cookie for breakfast.

More herbs from a local farmer.

Oh sweet heaven - they sell coffee. I was told that the beans are not grown locally (DUH - I'm glad they cleared that up for me), but they are ground and packaged locally. This farmer also had tea available and the herbs for the tea were, according to him in fact, grown on his farm.

More flowers and plants from local farmers.

After the Farmer's Market, we hopped over to Fairy Grandmother's house. Bro ate some banana while we waited for her to come back from the gym...

... and we kept Dear Husband company while he prepared Fairy Grandmother and Luvs2Boat's boat for the Blue Angels' flyover.

Conclusion: Loved, loved, loved the Farmer's Market. Will go back again. Can't wait for some local produce to arrive (tomato, fruits, yum).

Just what I was thinking.. hehehe!!! Wish she could just hop on over here...
This was very entertaining and made me laugh, which is not easy right now. I have been trying to get my router working, and my efforts lost the sound, printer and internet on my computer.. and no, the router is still not working. I have gotten the internet back, but no sound and no printer.. I am NOT in the best of moods right now.. I have wasted most of the day on this.. I need to get away from this for a while, so guess I will load up the trash and head for the dump.. Oh, the joys of country living!!!

Life without the internet - say it isn't so? I'm trying to figure out how to get Lulu's laptop working before we go to camp so that I can "twitter" while I am there. Wouldn't that be fabulous?????
