I headed over to a local farmers market @ 10 am this morning before all the good stuff was gone. They are only there on Fridays and I was hoping to get some fresh fruit and vegs.

To my surprise they don't open until noonDoubt

I thought farmers were up with the chickensQuestion

They had to feed the chickens, and the cows, and the pigs before they came Smile I used to have chickens and I don't think they ever slept! You could hear the rooster crowing at 3 and 4 in the morning.

I know there is a lot to do before they go to market. I did go back at noon and bought some beautiful Jersey corn and tomatoes. Can't wait for dinner tonight Smile

I have a farmers market just 5 blocks from my house and on my way to work....but they are only there on Fridays and I have to be at work at 7:15 a.m. and they are closed when I get off. Maybe soon they will move to Saturdays! Last night I bought yellow squash at Whole Foods and cooked one for myself with a little onion (southern style). It was delicious. Have a great weekend!Smile

We had a decent sized garden last year. I miss it. Especially the lima beans. They were sooo good. And the zucchini for zucchini bread. Although I think that one is probably a blessing in disguise!

IT really is a hour by hour deal for me.
Take the hours down to the minutes. Take the minutes down to the present moment. You can only make a decision in the present moment. And we are all moving forward in the present moment together with you.

Thanks for the support, it's difficult when you feel you're doing it alone.

Yes, we are what our ancestors hoped us to be...and we carry it forward so why not be the best we are able at this time?
