Sunny Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

Oh my gosh, I went to the grocery store today and I have a major case of sticker shock! EEK! I keep reading and hearing about how expensive it is to shop at a farmers market. Whoa, back up and go to your local grocery store. I have to admit that I grabbed “Barry” in the produce department and asked him if he realized that I could buy locally grown cucumbers, potatoes, tomatoes, melons, eggplant, squash, peppers and so on for at least half of what they were charging! Poor “Barry” thought I was attacking him and he went on to explain that the price increase had something to do with the way farmers are growing these days. Okay, now I am totally confused because our farmers put seeds, corms, roots, eyes, etc. into soil and then watch the stuff grow. Granted, you have to weed, water, pick off the pests, talk to the plants...you know, farm! It finally dawned on me, maybe “Barry” was trying to explain that the big guys who supply grocery stores use tricks and stuff that is not natural to most of us. I put the kale back in place...under the beautiful spray of water that is trying to make them look fresh without much success. I will wait until Saturday when I can purchase some honest to gosh homegrown fresh kale at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market. Sorry “Barry” but my money is going to local farmers at a much better price!
