An Unpleasant Milestone and The Farmers' Market

What a week! Mercy cut her first tooth on Wednesday, which means we have had a cranky girl for four days. At least now I know why she didn't sleep well on Tuesday... but she hasn't slept well since then either. That first tooth is such a killer :-(

Anyway, I took the kids downtown to the local farmer's market today. It just started up last weekend and is supposed to run through October. When the weather cools down a bit this fall, I'd love to walk there with the stroller, but today we drove. I bought tomatoes, blueberries, and a bulb of garlic. I haven't tried the tomatoes or garlic yet, but the blueberries are excellent! I'm going to have to find some recipes to make with them, as I doubt they'll last long even in the fridge. Hmm, maybe blueberry pancakes for breakfast tomorrow? :-9


  1. Lucky you having a farmer's market within walking distance. Our blueberries lasted 2 wks in the fridge with no signs of spoilage when I baked them in a cobbler just a couple of nights ago.

  2. Yes, there are some advantages to living in a city -- we're a mile from Main Street, which is where our library, the PO, a thrift store, and a couple parks are. I try to walk with the stroller down there as often as possible, though this summer it's been too hot to do that much.

    These blueberries were pretty ripe, so I don't think they would have lasted long in the fridge. There are a few left that we'll eat today, but I baked most of them into muffins -- I'll blog about those when I get my pics downloaded from my camera :-)


Thanks for stopping by! Stay and chat, won't you?
