Saturday Farmer’s Market

Saturday Farmer’s Market is an event I started a couple of years ago, but kind of let get away from me. My dear, dear friend Chris asked me last month if I minded if he resurrected it (just in time for Easter!) and I was delighted to turn the reins over to him. Check out his blog for more gardening and good food goodness and join in the fun!


Look at the wee baby peach! I love it!


This is my daughter’s bed. There are a couple flowers that came back from last year. Her school project cabbage. One brussels sprout. A lot of wild flower seed she scattered a couple weeks ago. And about FIFTY baby tomato plants. I just don’t even know where to put them.


The surprise cucumber(s)! They came up from last year’s plant.


The brussels sprouts are getting so big!


So are the onions!


And I am so proud of my potatoes! Isn’t it adorable!


The comfrey is coming up nicely.


So is the oregano. Thank goodness, because I’m almost out of my dried batch from last year.


Here we have more oregano, rosemary, chives, thyme, and the parsley that will not die. That parsley is from LAST summer. It lived all winter!


And this is some random flower in the daughter’s box that came back from last year. Not sure what it is. Any clues?

Today I will be putting in the wee baby tomato plants, cucumbers, jalapeΓ±os, sweet banana peppers, and, if the seeds sprout today, beans and peas. If they don’t, they’ll go in tomorrow.

What do you have planned for your garden this week? Or will you be hitting up the Farmer’s Market?
