Today at the Farmers Market I spotted a new type of lettuce. I like the name of it very much. Imagine all the beautiful first course salads that could be made with it.
This fellow was more excited at the prospect of selecting a cookie than he was at examining lettuces, and I can't blame him for that.
Nor do I fault this man for holding on tightly to his serving of asparagus for one.
There was coffee, flowers, and herbs and I wandered among it all juggling my bag, my camera, and a nice strong cup of coffee.
I did not purchase any Kale/Broccoli but I did get another one of those heads of Salanova lettuce. This past week I made salads with it along with red pepper, cucumbers, asparagus, a bit of left over smoked gouda cheese, ranch dressing, and sunflower seeds on top. Sublime.
I eavesdropped on experts giving gardening advice and made a new friend this week.
Herbs were purchased to add to the assortment already growing out back and I also came home with some swiss chard to wilt along with spinach this week.
This "jupiter" coleus came home with me as well because I don't have one with curly edges like this on the front porch at Tall Tales headquarters yet. And I am pretty sure I need one.
