Summer is definitely here ~ everything is blooming and green and fragrant everywhere you look and smell. We've been plagued by east coast type weather the last 3 days ~ thunder and lightening almost 'round the clock (poor cowardly Dozer!) ~ but the rain at least held off long enough for me to make my first trek this season to the Edmonds' Farmers Market.
I could hang there all day ~ free music, gorgeous produce and flowers as far as you can see, with the added bonus of mom tagging along today while I was on the hunt to find local strawberries and blueberries (mission accomplished) for canning jam this weekend. I also came away with lots of veggies, a couple loaves of fresh baked bread, an apricot ginger scone that I'm saving for later and some chocolate macaroons for my husband. But the find of the day were these new red potatoes from Gypsy Rows farm in Silvana, just north of where I live:
How could I pass these by when the farmers risked life and limb to put food on my table, their boots filling with mud, dodging lightening bolts as the rains came down. They get an A++ for creativity, don't you think? :)
