lists for everything i need to do, i need NOT to do, to buy, to cook, to make, and now...lists of things i want to blog about! this list certainly has started to accumulate, and (THANKS to your support!) i simply cannot wait to share them all with you..
i awoke early saturday morning, excited about the sign for the farmer's market i saw on the way in late the night before. i hoped on my bike, and beach-clad in sundress and flip flops- i, of course, forgot my phone. and boy was i disappointed i did when i got there.
the lake of this tiny little beach town was surrounded with booths of all sorts.. there were watermelons galore, tons of tomatoes, rum! cakes (that my dad loved!) and pies o' plenty, jewelry and art for the house and yard alike. it truly was a wonderful surprise to be able to participate in some local efforts while beachin' it.

so the 'unflappable heather' (she rarely comes out, unless its really important) found a way to turn our two porches and walkway into a pretty sweet little porch/container garden spot. and i must say, this time i've done better than just lettuce and tomatoes...*friendly spider on the raspberries (moved to large container)
*figs! i lost all the early fruit to the summer hail storm
*fig, tomatoes, herbs, transplanted asparagus patch
*another view, look for the boot in an upcoming post!
*soon to be pesto!
*habaneros, cayenne, tomatoes, chives, arugula, herbs
so although i have had to adapt a little to the new surroundings, i have embraced this change slightly better than most ive been faced with over the past months, and only hope that it will bring the same peace (and bounty!) as it did before. may some of you find this same peace, by digging your hands in the dirt, picking the fruits of your labor, or putting up some of that to enjoy during the colder winter months we will soon face. whatever it may be, peace to all of you, in whatever way it comes..
