Really late Farmer's Market Post

About a month ago my shift changed. Now i work on Saturdays, 945 to 845. i dislike it. One reason is that Saturday mornings used to be my farmer market day! Several vendors, like the milk guy, aren't there any other day. So i need to get up early one morning!

I didn't get a picture of this week's farm box. R picked it up for me and it had 3 sorts of eggplant, turnip greens, arugula, bell peppers, red Russian kale, butternut squash, acorn squash, purple island peppers and cucumbers. The butternut squash was kinda small, just over a pound cut up but we made it into butternut squash bake: chunks of squash mixed with onion, a little olive oil, bread crumbs, italian spices and bleu cheese. Sprinkle extra bread crumbs over the top and bake at 400 for 35 mins. YUM!

My plants have had a resurgence due completely to B's intensive watering. The tomato plant is gigantic!
And there are tomatoes on it!

The daisies are producing again too.

lots of purple basil.

and garlic chives, rosemary, and some sad sage.

I'm concerned about how everything will handle us moving apartments on Oct. 17. Especially the tomato plant. The new place has a balcony but nothing above it so i'm not sure how i can let the tomato run up. maybe i'll have to make a dish of green tomatoes the night before we move! I gotta start packing up things as well but don't know where to start. soooooo many books! I am going to post a picture of just the book boxes, of mine, when they are all packed. and i went by Mckay's this weekend and got 4 more. eek. someone save me!

  2. There are about 13 or so tomatoes that i counted today, from grape size up to about lemon sized. Gerber daisies are great flowers, very colorful and they stand up inside nicely too. the red one doesn't seem to want to flower anymore though.
