Click on images to blow them up - there is a lot of great information!
This farmer uses this to grow his tomatoes - no dirt!
He is so proud of his humungous tomato plants!
The fruits of his labours.
Until I moved to the country I had no idea how many types of tomatoes are out there!
Peppers and garlic!
I asked...they don't taste like chocolate. Le sigh.
With all the farmers' markets around it is very easy to eat local!
All of the farmers and businesses within 100 miles of us.
A food demo was going on in the middle of the event. In typical fashion there were 6 chefs preparing....tomatoes, cheese and basil on baguettes. Remember how many it took to make a hamburger at the Lavender Festival?
Since moving here I have discovered just how enjoyable it is to spend time chatting with farmers, finding out about their products, getting the scoop on new products and supporting my local businesses.
This is my local farm - every spring the owner dresses in a strawberry costume and takes people on wagon rides to pick berries!
I see my lavender shortbread has some competition!
Have a fabulous day!
