    I went to the local farmers market today which turned out to be much more abundant than I had anticipated. I mostly went to see what I could get there, so I didn't have a list or a plan. I did buy some honey since I'm almost out, but otherwise just picked some produce that looked good to take...

    lately I have been heading down to the Farmers market every two weeks to grab our fruit and vegetables. (well on and off) I have known for a long time that it is much cheaper and the produce is better but there have been a few reasons that I sometimes just don't do it. It is not the worlds...

So you see the American spirit can not be kept down for very long, we will find a way. Maybe back to a simpler time is exactly what...

    We went to an organic farmers market today. Very much fun. Ds bought some yellow potatoes and paid for them (with my money) and then dd had to "pay" too. So I gave her a dime that the farmer gave back to me when she wasn't looking. I also tried edamame beans today. very yummy!
