Saturday Farmers Market is a weekly event originally created by the beautiful and nature loving, Heather at Capricious Reader. It's a weekly event that celebrates gardening, be it your own garden or gardens around you; local food, be that at your local farmers market or at a restaurant or festival that celebrates eating locally; a recipe that you've created using fresh ingredients or a whole cookbook; and veggies, flowers, herbs and farm goods galore. Anyone and everyone can participate. It was originally started within the book blogging community but I'd love to see it expand beyond as well. You don't have to have a garden or grow veggies to participate, just post about how veggies, flowers, local farms, etc. have impacted your life this week. You'd be surprised! It may be too cold to grow things and it may be too hot to grow things, but you may just want to post about the plans you have for when the ground thaws. Or maybe even share with us how your community aims to keep things more sustainable or even about the local trails and nature offerings around you! This will also connect really well with Mrs. Beth Fish's Weekend Cooking ;) Thanks Heather for letting me take over the reigns for this wonderful idea that spawned from your creative brain :) Feel free to leave the link to your post in the Mr. Linky below, spread the word, and come back to read everyone else's posts as well!
Hey lovelies! Hope you've all had a wonderful week! Mine's been crazy and hectic, but I'm not here to talk about that! I'm here to talk about veggies and flowers and herbs :) The things that give me a little bit of happiness every time I'm around them. And there's only one more day of work and then my weekend is here finally! Lots of growth going on in the garden! It's getting to really be grow time down here in Southern Louisiana!
Here is just a very small sampling of the many tomatoes I have growing right now :D They're always the pride and joy of my garden and I'm so happy with how well they're doing this year! Last year for some reason I had really bad luck with tomatoes. It was also my first year patio gardening though so I have another year experience under my belt. I'm looking at the tomatoes and the jalapenos and picturing the salsa that will be made already :D
So what's going on in your garden right now? What's going on at your farmer's market or in your neighborhood? Have you visited your local nursery recently and want to tell us all about it? Read a good book about gardening or nature? Tell us all about it and feel free to leave a link in the Mr. Linky below and come back to see what others are talking about :) And have a great weekend!!
