The trees are blooming. It's just too, too nice to be inside.
Yesterday I took the younger two kids to a Farmer's Market. Now, tell me what images those words conjure up in your head.
I imagined trestle tables with boxes of potatoes, pumpkins, onions, cauliflowers, cabbages, lettuce, oranges, strawberries, lemons, etc to be felt, smelt, bought & brought home to enjoy the fresh, full flavours.
It was advertised as having local beef & lamb available to buy.
Exactly what we have been looking for.
It wasn't what I expected. Let's just say I didn't come home with any fruit. Or veg. Or meat. But we did have really yummy sausage sandwiches. And I tasted a really yummy locally made red wine. And I brought home some direct from the local factory fudge. I guess I am used to bigger markets. This one only had a dozen stalls. However I would like to stop at the seed stall once we are back in a home of our own.
I really really really wanted to see the bag lady. And she did not disappoint! I have never been a "bag lady", but I swear she could convert me! For those of you who missed it on Facebook, here's a pic:

Apart from that, it's been washing, washing and more washing.
What have you been up to this weekend?
Tell me what your favourite stall is at your local markets.
