Just Another Gorgeous Fall Day!

Yes I said Fall! Why do I say it is Fall? Well despite the 90 degree temperature today, the days are getting shorter, the nights cooler, the air crisper, the harvest is coming in and the Farmer's Market is alive with frivolity.

That is one of the best things about Fall, the quiet, calm, almost ho hum Farmer's Market of Summer becomes a buzzing place full of stands that almost fill up the park, hot dog vendors and even live music to watch. There are crops a plenty even on the worst of drought years.

Today at the Farmer's Market, for a mere 7$ I walked away with a lb of organic green and yellow beans, two peaches the size of my son's head, and about 8 large pears.   There was a band playing acoustic music and a small crowd sitting on the ground to watch.

After we had done our shopping we settled down to watch. I pulled a peach out and handed it to Bug I munched on green beans and crocheted.

It was so nice to simply spend a late morning with my son frolicking around the Farmer's Market, eating fresh picked yummy things and listening to a delightful band play over the sound of my crochet hook swishing through yarn.
