Farmer’s Market: Fall edition
It’s been quite a while since I last made it to the Farmer’s Market. My last visit was hot, humid, accompanied by kids and an ice cream treat. Yesterday was cool (low 70’s), comfortable, childless and the ice cream vendor was no longer in attendance. I wonder if he knows that back to school means back to routine and back to watching what you eat.
There was an abundance of fall harvest.

Plenty of fall decor.
I know that many feel that zinnias are their favorite annual but I’m not one of them. I do like the color and especially these that look heirloom but I don’t like how the flowers grow and the leaves hang on them brown and ugly looking. I suppose if you plan right you could have something planted in front of them to hide the ugliness.
With all these signs of fall I’m still in denial. I LOVE summer so much and I love the hot weather. I like being outside and I love the fresh air. My friend, Susan, recently summed it up precisely “I love fall! I promise! But I have a hard time enjoying it when I know what’s coming next. It’s like one of those days where the baby naps allllll day. And it’s so awesome. And you get so much done. But, in the back of your mind you know the utter hell that is coming that night.” Reprinted without her knowledge. 🙂
I just now realized that I missed Maine Monday. D’oh! Back to it next week!
