To Market, To Market
We went to a farm market on Friday. It was a marvellous place to visit, though quite a distance from home. It is great to be able to buy really fresh vegetables and juicy, crisp apples for a change. We don't eat squash, but I always love to see their autumn shades of yellows and oranges. They are so colourful.
Rows of pumpkins await a new home. No doubt many will be carved ready for Hallowe'en. I would love to buy one, but not having an outdoor space, I found from previous years that they do not keep successfully indoors, as it is too warm.
Further colour is provided by potted Mums, as they are known here: they are a variety of Chrysanthemum. And I just love the corn stalks, which can also been seen standing in the fields in the surrounding area.
We returned home with bags laden with lots of fresh vegetables, apples and freshly dug potatoes ~ delicious!
Candytuft Corner is a cosy place to drop by for a cup of tea and a slice of cake. I always have the kettle on and in my free time, I'm often in the kitchen baking.
Welcome to my blog. My name is Marie and I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. I've been blogging since March 2007. I enjoy home-making, reading and crafts, including cross-stitch, knitting and sewing. More recently, I've started gardening and I'm trying to tame a very overgrown space to create my dream of an English Cottage Garden.
Much as I appreciate receiving awards, I request that you do not share awards or tags with me. Present time constraints do not allow me to respond and I have no desire to cause offence by ignoring them.
