The Farmer’s Market is totally open for business for the year, which is totally cool because it’s been a long time since I’ve been around so many hairy arm-pitted chics wearing tank tops. Nothing wrong with that, except, please leave your arms to your sides at all times… or at least until I’ve left the premises. I went to the market on Saturday… the first time this season… and what did I see. A LOT of green. There isn’t much growing going on here during the winter and spring months, so all they really had to sell was green lettuce in 52 different varieties and various vegetable plants… for planting… duh.
I’d say at least 75% of the booths looked like this… which would be cool and all, except my green thumb fell off years ago… can you believe I worked in the Garden Shop at K-Mart for at least 5 years? This might be a good time to let Madre know that I’ve already managed to kill at least 35% of her potted plants. And before you get all pissy, I am following your watering schedule to a T!!!! I think they all just hate me and are on strike. Either way, I gave them all a blessing and hopefully they magically revive by next Mondee.
Oh look… some purpley green stuff! I can’t tell if that lady in the background was putting a voodoo spell on the weird chic with the camera or if she was posing for my 2013 Calendar… Ladies of the Lettuce Leaves.
Now that I’m looking at this picture, I totally want to go back and buy that poor little lonely flower on the far left. He was probably the runt of the litter.
And then there was this guy… not exactly sure what one does with a horn that long… but that didn’t stop him from playing his one note for like 20 years. He’s a one note wonder! The best part of the day, discovering this flavor of popcorn:
Oh, heavenly lemony stuff! It was super yumtastic… and it totally went well with my sour attitude… get it? Oh laws, I just can’t with these puns today… a bunch of lemons, if you ask me!
Question of the Day: Have you been to the Farmer’s Market yet this year? Any fun purchases?
