Farmer's Market Harvest

Our market was bustling this morning despite the intense heat.  We've had several 90+ days but a cold front is on the way that promises to drop the temperature into the mid-60s tonight.  Maybe a little rain will mix in.  Our thoughts go out to Louisiana and Mississippi that is really being inundated with rain.




This week we'll be feasting on eggplant, onions, pretty peppers, a mixture of petite summer squash, beets and their greens and, at last,


an array of lovely tomatoes.

Wishing all of you a pleasant and safe Labor Day weekend.

  1. I hope you have a great holiday weekend!! Hey, have you ever been to that Mill Mountain Zoo up by the star in Roanoke? I have never been and want to go, maybe this weekend. BUT I am really afraid of high winding mountain roads and drop offs. Even steep hills really scare me. So if you have been, would I be too scared? One person said it is fine, but that star is SO high!!

  2. You hit the mother load of veggies on your visit. Heat up that grill and set a flame to these and bathe them with a bit of olive oil and sea salt then enjoy. Makes my mouth water.

    We are to get some MUCH needed rain on Monday and Tuesday with temp in the mid 80's... HOT DOG~

    Have a blessed Labor Day.

  7. Oh yum, those vegetables look so good. I was with a friend today who is on some medication that prevents her eating vegetables or any kind of salad. What a predicament to be in.

  9. I was so hoping to get to my farmers' market today to get fresh veggies for our daughter's birthday dinner tomorrow. At opening time it started to thunder and rain and never quit all afternoon! We needed it so I won't complain. The cooler temps will feel great for a few days!

    Thinking of those in the south too.

  11. What a beautiful assortment of delicious vegetables. We have a huge organic farmers market near our home . . . but it is on Sunday and I keep forgetting to go. I only made it once. Maybe, I can actually remember to go tomorrow.

    Fondly,
    Glenda

  12. I think that at this time of year I appreciate fresh local veggies a little more, because I know that it won't be too much longer before they're out of season. Your trip to the market certainly was fruitful! Enjoy your "haul" and your holiday weekend. :)
