Day 274.

Thursday, October 1, 2009.

It was cold today - I guess Welcome to October. I do love the fall, so I'm not really going to complain about it. Sun with the cold would have been even better, but I'll take the closed-toe-shoes, vest and jean weather alone.

I am grateful for the fall farmers market.

Hyde Park's farmers market was still going strong today. The kids and I walked there this morning, a leisurely stroll that turned more into a nature walk on the way home - which then turned into a collecting twigs and leaves and making a home for bugs in plastic ziploc bags. But, back to the farmers market, we got a lot of great stuff. Big tomatoes, green beans, butternut squash, plums, honeycrisp apples, baby bella mushrooms, farm eggs, free range/grass fed chuck roast, chicken legs and ground beef, and grape tomatoes. Yum, yum, yum!

There is nothing like coming home and making a lunch out of your farmers market finds. Happy fall!
