Farmer's Market

You can't bring this home from the grocery stores, folks. The house smells of ripe cantelope, juicy heirloom tomatoes, and the last of the season's sweet corn. Even the baby smells fresher (I know, how is that even possible?!) from having been out in the morning sunshine. This was the last weekend for our local farmer's market, so we made a point to go.

My favorite thing we picked up? These heirloom carrots. Aren't they pretty? And the goats get a tasty treat, too. They love carrot tops. One customer thought for certain that these were little potatoes, and the vendor had to convince him otherwise by comparing them to actual potatoes in the next bin over. Just look at the tops; carrots, indeed!
