Buy Fresh Buy Local!

Buy Local
"Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up makes it permanent."
~Marilyn Savant~

This photo was also captured at the Farmers Market on Friday during our family expedition.  
The flowers were bundled with elastic and displayed in large black buckets of water on several tables. Herbs were mixed into the bouquets and the aroma just divine. What interesting arrangements when the unsuspected is mixed with the ordinary. I can name cosmos, black eyed susan, yarrow, marigold and zinnia in the above photo as for the rest of them, I really don't know, and it really doesn't matter as they all work together in a amiable sort of way. 
Knowing that this one particular farm has met with several setbacks and in many ways is still struggling to survive the "big guys" they keep on trying new crops and are really making    
a difference, hence all the signage. Many of these farms need our support and are so worth our patronage. Visit one today, have a tactile experience, enhancing your remaining senses. Yes, yes, yes, the tomatoes lined up and were screaming pick me, pick me!
