A Color-filled Jaunt to the Farmer’s Market


One of my absolute favorite things about summer is the Farmer’s Market.   As I may have mentioned before, I love gardens, but I really don’t like gardening.  That holds especially true for the vegetable garden.  I tried my hand at it once and it was an unmitigated disaster.  I went crazy planting tomatoes of all varieties.  What I didn’t know was that those tiny little spring plants… turn into enormous tentacled monsters by August.  Everything was tangled together.  What the deer didn’t eat, I didn’t want.  That’s when I discovered Minnesota’s many Farmer’s Markets.  I have never looked back…

The bounty was overflowing today.  The people, the colors, the aromas….I have to confess that my purchases today had more to do with color and beauty than with nutrition or taste.  I bought the radishes, the elongated purple eggplant, and red peppers…It should be quite an unusual stir fry…
I hope you enjoy this little jaunt to the Farmer’s Market!  For more color inspiration, check out Color Route Co. (My daughter’s blog) or Rows of Six (My other daughter’s blog)…
