Pretty radishes, pumpkins, and flowers were on display at the farmers market this morning.
I was very glad to see the True Vine blueberry ladies because stocking up on blueberry jam for the winter was on my list of things to do today. Their pink toned hoodies and smiling faces were a bonus.
I had already purchased sweet potatoes, peppers, and kale and was getting ready to leave the Mellowfields Urban farm booth when I spotted this fellow carefully surveying the tomatoes. I stood back to watch which resulted in my deciding I needed a Georgia Peach and Johnson Red for BLT's this week. It seems late in the year for a BLT, but with tomatoes that look this good what could I do? When you sit back and listen to a current and former tomato grower talk about their craft, it makes you want to eat tomatoes.
Would you get a look at this giant dahlia? I almost fell over when I saw it.
I roasted red peppers, sweet potatoes, and red onion today. This will sound very strange, but I love roasting vegetables and putting them on salads in the fall. This week I had romaine lettuce, celery, egg, roasted butternut squash, and sunflower seed salads. Completely delicious.
I did not come home with any pro carved Jack-o-lanterns. But I did think about it. For a minute. Or maybe two.
