I took a blogging break. Just didn't have time. The garden is weedy, my day job is busy, friends and family have been in the mix and I really couldn't get to it. But I'm back with a weekend market recap!
As always, the market was fabulous. I love it. There is an energy I can't find anywhere else.
The beets were fabulous this week. This is my best beet harvest. Beets used to seem so 'uncool', now I think they rock. The colours are amazing, vibrant, and I had so many compliments on them. I even heard one customer tell her friend, "this is the place to buy beets".
This is my vendor neighbor/friend Nancy. She owns a bakery and I get to stand next to unlimited butter tarts and pies every Saturday morning. They are SO hard to resist!
Have you heard of//seen/tried these bars? They're really good. I had a couple samples from a store in town a month or two ago, and saw them at Costco a few weeks back so bought a box. I REALLY like them. Tons of nuts. I've tried all 3 bars and like they equally. If you see them, and like nutty, hardy bars, I suggest giving them a try.
The rest of my day job career is smooth sailing from here on out. Not that it won't be a lot of work in the next 6 weeks, but I have 3 and 4 day weeks for the rest of the summer. The last week is a full week as I'll be training my superb (I hope!) replacement. In this mix of short weeks I have a vacation with my mom, a vacation with The Shepherd, visiting with friends, a night alone in the city...so much to do. I feel like I'm entering a transition phase of my life and I couldn't be more thrilled about it!
