I can't wait to go back to the market each week with Finn! It's walking distance from our front porch, but I'm already looking forward to the day when I have a bike with a basket and a seat for Finn to ride in...and it is the best to stand and listen to a group of old-timers play bluegrass for all the shoppers. Seriously, the best.
Saturday I purchased three herbs for the herb garden I hope to start soon. Spearmint, Sage, and German Winter Thyme.
It gives me such a sense of locality and warmth to stand and talk to a local herb grower about caring for my new plants...it's even better when friendly market-goers stop and pitch their tidbits of knowledge into the conversation "Well if ya can't grow mint ya can't grow nuthin. Them's is weeds in these parts, they'll a take over everthan'!" "If ya want some of those just come on over to my place and I'll give em to ya for free to take off my hands!" Love it.
I can't wait to go back and try the homemade Amish donuts that I keep hearing everyone talk about!
Yep summer, it's official, you're my favorite. Now to go pin some herb garden inspiration...
