Saturday Farmers' Market
I spent Saturday morning at the Northeast Minneapolis Farmers' Market selling my wares. It was a beautiful morning to be at the market.
The piles of vegetables and buckets of flowers never cease to delight my eyes. Though I've seen them at so many markets before, I can't resist trying to capture these images again.
We've had gorgeous weather lately. This week started out hot and summery, but a cold front has come through and there is talk of frost on later in the week. After all the subtle changes that mark summer's slow leave-taking the frost is a harsh reminder that of course this season won't last. There will still be warm days and plenty to harvest even if the cold nips the summer vegetables away but not for too much longer. All the more reason to bask in what we've got, whether it is t-shirts and sandals or boots and a wool sweater.
While at the market, I couldn't resist picking up a large watermelon and another box of tomatoes some of which will become jam. What have you been doing to capture the end of summer or welcome fall?
