My haul. Lettuce, tomatoes asparagus, beans, radishes, honey and bread from Minoo’s bakery.
Inside they had information and vendors selling herbs. I got three types of basil, two dill plants (one for the caterpillars, one for us), thyme, cilantro, two kinds of oregano, sage, parsley and rosemary. Maybe a couple more. All except the cilantro and sacrificial dill are in the raised bed. The cilantro will take over, so it goes in a pot, and the sacrificial dill is going over by the wildflower part of the lawn.
I love the farmers’ market. The plan this summer is to buy my veggies there at least 75% of the time. It will take planning, but I think I can do it. I’m gonna use a bunch of it tonight. I bought a nice steelhead filet, and will have beans and potatoes with it. Maybe some of the asparagus – or some from the garden.
On the way there, I saw a garage sale and stopped. Holy cow, we got three workbenches, two metal cabinets, shelving, a creeper, some tool boxes, a table, and a gardening bench for $150. Not damn bad. The hardest part was getting the electronics bench down the stairs. It’s not actually downstairs yet, the Husband is taking it apart to get it down a 120 year old stairwell.
The medium sized girls are having an outing today. They’re in the pen in the yard enjoying the sunshine. This is their second trip outside, and they’re realizing it’s okay. Last time they huddled under the rain tarp, missing the entire dang point.
