A Quick Nip Out to the Farmer's Market
Life finally conspired to let us pop over to the Hillsboro Farmer's Market this weekend. It was eerily empty, which meant things were amazingly priced. I tried to give as many veggies good homes as I could, but we're gonna have to put our backs into eating it all this week.
Unrelated: I do think patty pan squash is the prettiest vegetable ever.
We were hoping for little pickling cucumbers, but we're either too early or too late. Tough to tell in this upside down growing season.
These come from the Hillsboro Garden Club's stall. We always love buying there - organic goodies from home gardens. There's something about this packaging I find very charming.
We're already seeing creeping signs of Fall approaching here in the Northwest – new apples are appearing at some stalls, and certain trees have leaves changing color already! Wait, what? I know I've been out of things all summer, but that's way too soon.
Can I just have about four more weeks of farm produce, please? I need to catch up.
(As always, all today's photos are in this year's Flickr set, if you're so inclined.)
