i do love the farmer's market...i love pumpkins too.
while perusing the market i found a new farmer there and
she had one pumpkin on display...of course in my excitement i
asked her if she would sell it...she said this is a farmer's market...i
would sell you anything. okay...so i bought my first pumpkin.
now i proudly have it on diplay on the kitchen table on an etched glass
cake pedestal...it is beautiful after all.
we have been eating all the good stuff provided by our garden,
vendors at the farmer's market and our csa (community supported agriculture.)
on the menu this last week was stuffed peppers...a favourite of my darling hubby.
fresh yellow crook~neck squash from one of
our favourite farmers the lingo family at beaverdam creek farms.
we bought shares of their farm and get a wonderful basket of goodies
every saturday...this was one of our july baskets.
those little sungold cherry tomatoes are the most delicious...i call them nature's candy.
a little phrase i coined to get my little grand girl ellery to eat more fresh fruit.
straight from the garden to the table sliced tomatoes
and cucumbers with cuban bread toasted.
