~*~*~The countdown has begun~*~*~
Only 4 more weeks of the 2011 Bluegrass Farmers' Market season left!
Wow, where did the summer go? It feels like I was just harvesting lettuce and then the seasons first tomato. I have to admit that I am going to miss my garden fresh tomatoes...the ones at the grocery store taste like cardboard to me. I am going to make sure that we sit down and enjoy what will probably be the last bacon, basil and tomato sandwich for the year. Please, I need some (((hugs))) because I can feel the tears starting already!
Okay, I need to get back on track and enjoy the last four weeks of 100% homegrown goodness! Maybe some wonderful squash and maybe a pumpkin pie. How about some grilled eggplant with wonderful shiitake mushrooms. I'm feeling a bit better. Oh my, I think I might even be able to get some green beans and broccoli! How could I pass up the sweet taters and onions...or the peppers. Alright, I am darn near back to normal! I could start the day off with some farm fresh eggs and toast with homemade jam. Lunch could be a perfectly seasoned soup or maybe even chili with a fabulous zucchini chocolate cake for dessert. Dinner has already been reserved for my aforementioned BBT sandwich. Yes, I am a happy camper once again. :)
Geez, I was so darn busy thinking about the “right now” that I didn't even think about stocking up on the “must haves” for winter. Honey, garlic, herb seasoning, homemade soap and of course the jam! And, I do believe that I will shop while enjoying a homemade pumpkin cookie!
Yes, everything will be available this Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market Richmond Rd. location! The weather folks are promising a warm and sunny day...much better than last week. So call a friend and come visit us as we count down the season. We want to remember our customers smiling faces!!!!
