We are so lucky to have quite a few local farm markets near us and one of my sweet joys of Summer is visiting one. Oh the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of nature's bounty!

For the last week, our family has feasted on the most delicious sweet corn, tomatoes, zucchini, blackberries and freshly baked bread. All courtesy of various local farmers.
Is there anything better?

I apologize for being away once again. Summer has been a whirlwind for all of us. Add to the mix a nasty virus that played havoc with my health and then attacked Bill, Grace and finally Dan! All are well, or almost so, now thank God. So it's back to business at hand...enjoying Summer!

I hope all is well with each one of you!

Love to all!

Oh, your picturs are so pretty! Fresh fruits and veggies are one of life's best pleasures. I don't know of actually pick your own places around here but I do make it to the farmer's market regularly.

Those blackberries look so yummy, I can almost taste the sunshine on them! Enjoy your time with your friends in MO and I hope everyone is 100% real soon!

I love farmers markets. Unfortunately for me they are all closed when I get off work. We only have them during the week here and of course I work. So my "fresh" veggies and fruits come from the supermarket. "SIGH"

Just "hopped" over from Back Porch. Lovely pictures. My latest post was on taking our grandkids to a nearby farmer's market. They had never been to one. My husband grew up on a farm and he loves the open air market!

You lucky dog you!!!

I feel like I have to search near and far for markets near me...I usually just end up at Wild by Nature and support my local farmer that way.
