Farmer’s Market

Well, it’s been ages since I’ve blogged.  It’s hard to say why, I often think about it but then never get around to actually doing it – kind of the story of my life.  Actually, I have been busy but not so busy that I couldn’t do a blog post once in awhile.  Hopefully, this post will prime the blogging pump.

Anyway, my husband came home from work a bit early today so we could go to the La Jara Farmer’s Market, it is on Friday afternoons and starts at 3pm and ends around 6 or 7 pm or when it starts to rain – as it usually seems to do on Friday afternoons just because of the Market (it seems that way).  It had been a damp sort of day and there weren’t a lot of vendors.  However, there was some very nice looking produce at very good prices – I got some squash and some nectarines.  We saw quite a few people we know and had fun talking with them.  There were lots of interesting people from old farmers to Amish folks.  My knitting friend, Ana, was there – she had a booth and was selling some of her hand knit items.  There was a very good guitar player, too – a bit loud, but very good.

Since I am NOT a morning person, I really like the La Jara Farmer’s Market being on Friday afternoons instead of on Saturday morning like most Farmer’s Markets.  Otherwise, I might miss seeing interesting people like these!

It was drizzling while we were walking around the market.  Shortly after we left and returned home, it started raining quite hard.
