A VISIT TO THE FARM



It's been quite a week.  I have so much to tell you but it will have to be done in several parts.  Today I will tell you about the farm.  I haven't gone in ages, but decided today was the day.  So I headed out around noon time to see what was to be had.

It has been hot around here.  We are on day 5 of a heat wave.  When I started out to the farm the car registered this for a temperature.


On the way back it reached 100*.  I should have taken a picture of that!

Greensgrow Farm has a cute little koi pond.  I love looking at the fish.


 
The street it is on is tree lined and shady with lots of pretty plants along the curb.  Today there were lots of butterflies flying among the trees.



It is really such a pretty place.  But really hot standing in line to buy my veggies today.  I was glad to get back into the air conditioning in the car.


I'll bet you are wondering what great buys I got today.


A cucumber, three yellow onions, a yellow heirloom tomato and red and blue potatoes.  Sometime this week I am going to make red, white and blue potato salad.

Hope you all have a great Sunday.  I'll be back sooner with some more things to show you.

Kathy

  1. Love the idea of the potato salad! It has been so HOT! I like the street the farm is on. Even if I don't buy anything,I often go in for a stroll through the lovely plants. I also like the 'fountain'made out of a bicycle. The sound of the trickling water is so soothing....Thank you for sharing your visit.

    1. When I saw they had red and blue potatoes, I immediately thought of a patriotic potato salad. I plan to take pictures to show you how it's made.

    1. I love the fresh veggies I get at the farm. They are a little expensive, but oh so fresh. Hope you have a nice Sunday too!

  4. I was delighted at first to see the temperature in YOUR CAR!! I hope that means all is well with your trusty steed, and that you have her back instead of all that changing for a new one.

    Something fresh from the hands of the farmer is always a treat, and those all look like a marvelous find. We have a trove of small cucumbers and grape tomatoes, as well, and I'm envisioning a lovely salad lunch right now.

    Hope you cool off soon, so you can enjoy that fancy potato salad in your pretty garden!

    1. Well... it's only my car temporarily. It's the rental car. Our car is a total loss and after much work this week we will be getting a new one. Or new to us I should say. I love the fresh veggies I get at the farm. They are expensive, but good.

    1. I think the heat wave has broken here. All 80* weather for this week. It's still hot, but so much better than the high 90*s we've been having.

  7. Kathy, I am so beyond spoiled with AC in my home and car. I remember when we were lucky to have fans. You got some nice veggies. You'll have to show us your salad when it's done...My daughter and I don't think blue is a good food color...unless it's blueberries. LOL. Blessings to you and Joe, hope you both are feeling well and staying cool. xoxo, Susie

    1. Blue potatoes are more purple than blue, but you take what you can get. I guess blueberries are really blue either. I will definitely be showing you my salad when it is finished.

  9. I went to Bauman farms after work today...my early day. Cherries to freeze, a couple oregano plants to name a few things. Warm out in area where the plants were. 88 degrees. I enjoy my visits there. Have a good evening.

  10. Sheesh that is hot! We started to come up towards PA this trip but decided to head towards Iowa instead. I was afraid it would be too cold your direction. Boy was I wrong!!
