Our local farmer's market hosted it's semiannual craft fair this morning. The first booth we found --a local etsian with so many fabulous wood toys. We initially looked for a few things to stash away for Christmas presents (yes, I start early), but the kids were having so much fun playing with the various little toys, that we bought them each a little item. I can't complain too much about them getting attached to locally-made, natural toys; they played with them all day.
After strolling the craft fair, we hit the farmer's stands. It seems like every week the variety of local produce is growing by leaps and bounds. It's wonderful! This week we found white peaches, basil, asparagus, cucumbers, zephyr squash and tomatoes. Of course, we had to sample some for lunch. My kids cleaned out half the peck of peaches we bought just at lunch!
This picture has nothing to do with the farmer's market, but how cute are they, scrubbed clean, playing Wildcraft on the deck, waiting for the fireflies to appear?
