It’s so nice that the Farmers’ Market is now open three times a week. They’ve been having a few strawberries but you have to be there when they open if you want them. Today we went, got there just before they opened and the lines had already formed at the vendors who had strawberries so Vince went to one, I went to the other and we were each able to get two cartons of strawberries.
The strawberries are so good! I could really eat an entire carton by myself.
Saturday we pick up our first CSA box. I’m pretty excited about that.
This afternoon a neighbor down the road told me she had started some tomatoes from seeds in her greenhouse and the plants were getting large enough to transplant and she offered to share so I went and picked up four tomatoes. I took her a jar of plum jelly that I’d made from our plum trees in Texas. I’m going to be sad when the plum jelly and peach jam are all gone but . . I’m happy to be here. Vince is going to plant a couple of plum trees . . I think. Addie keeps asking for plum trees. She really did love sitting on that ladder picking and eating the plums.
