Thank you farmers


Here are some more pretty pictures for you.Yesterday the Farmer's Market was intoxicating. It's the first time I have made it on Saturday since the market began, we seem to always be out of town on Saturday or I have been at a show somewhere. In true southern fashion, today was a Sunday lunch of butter beans, fried okra, fried in cornmeal I bought at the market, corn on the cob, fresh blueberries and buttermilk biscuits that Wes made with honey and strawberry jelly. Gerry's grandmother taught me how to make biscuits when we were first married and now Wes is following the tradition of her great grandmother. Naps for everyone after lunch, it just doesn't get more southern, except we didn't go to church, oh well, three times a day on Sunday growing up was quite enough of that, thank you!
Have a great Fourth of July everyone!!! We are expecting temps near 100 degrees f, so I won't be doing much of anything.

hi tracey,
i'd like to get one of those wicker backpack thingies to go to the farmers market with. sofia and i went today and got some bright yellow squash that had a green stem and they were so perfect looking, i thought they were plastic at a distance.

Thank you for sharing that! So colorful. Loved the guy eating a peach reading the WSJ. And what about that wicker backpack? That was so cool. Happy Fourth of July to you!

After hearing so many people thanking the military on July 4th it's really nice to see someone who thanks the people who feed America.
