I managed to get to the Farmer's Market again yesterday, after a hiatus last weekend when I slept too late. I didn't photograph my purchases like Nadine did, although now I wish I had. Instead, I'll share this photo of the marigolds I got there two weeks ago. I can see them out the window as I type this, little burst of color on the hillside out back. I lucked into some mulch, too, as the neighbors down the street had a tree removed and chipped, and were kind enough to post a sign indicating it was free. I felt funny pushing the wheelbarrow down the street, but it was worth it.
I didn't buy any flowers this week, just lots of produce. We had salad with fresh, local lettuce and tomataoes with dinner. And for lunch? Steamed new potatoes with butter and fresh parsley, inspired by the Liz's description of the dish over at PocketFarm. Simple, but oh, so very good. Tonight will be more salad and local corn, too. I can't wait.
