If you had been with me at the farmers market today you would have seen sunflowers, 2 boys with their bikes and their dog, and my friend Elinor in a cute t-shirt.
You would have spotted the first sweet corn of the season, been captivated by a very nice farmer selling cucumbers (so much so that you purchased 6), and it's likely you would have bought a jar of zinnias. You can not have too many jars of zinnias.
You would have seen lard for sale at the market for the first time ever and might have even contemplated buying some to try using it in a pie crust. But then changed your mind. You would have walked by a super cool orange and eggplant colored lily, and observed two nice ladies with pretty white hair trying to decide if they needed to buy farm fresh eggs this week or not.
Had you been with me today, you most certainly would NOT have seen this doggie. Because he was not at the market today. He was at the market last week but I forgot to put his picture in that post so I am adding it today. Because he was very fluffy and extremely well behaved.
Your basket contents might have looked like this when you unpacked after getting home. Then we would have sat out back in the shade, had a cup of coffee, and talked about what you were going to make out of everything you bought. That's what would have happened. If you had gone to the market with me today.
