Do you ever have a morning where you just can't get it "in gear"? Usually, on Saturday mornings, I am dressed and out of the house early enough to make the Farmer's Market. Then, it is on to the other errands in town.
Today proved to be one of those slow mornings. Before I knew it, it was too late for me to buy my veggies on the Town's Square.
I remembered another place...on one of those country back roads, I so often write about.
This is the same place that grows the beautiful poinsettias each Christmas season. Click HERE, to follow-up on a previous post.
It is a farm, located about 3 miles off the same road where I photographed the Century Plant.
How fresh is this? The owner is picking what I need for the week.
Since my garden is small this year, this is the next best thing to growing your own.
Look at the size of his tomato plants...
After weighing the tomatoes, he said the 2 1/2 lbs would be $2.50. Asking about the peppers, he replied, "You can have them for free". Free being one of my favorite words!
As I drove out, I could see all kinds of photo opportunities.
A rather old looking tractor.
A broken window, in a weathered unused building.
As I finish writing my post, I'm thinking this is exactly the way my Saturday was supposed to be...a late start.
Otherwise, I would have missed the opportunity to share, with you, another glimpse of my life on the Black Land Prairie.
