Olympia Farmer's Market has Organic Cherries This Week!  Yummmmmm!!

Thought I better get down to the Olympia Farmer's Market today since it looks like a busy weekend, & was delighted to see (and taste test) some delicious organic cherries.

Also had to stock up yet again on strawberries (always a dilemma between buying too small a quantity and running out before the next market day, or too many where they MUST be eaten or frozen - like quickly).  Added in some asparagus and lettuce, so I think dinner tonight will have good quantities of veggies & fruit!

Then we checked out some great flowering shrubs, and pretty, colorful annuals - do I have room to plant some more??? 

Olympia Farmer's Market flowers & me

 

After getting a couple more tomato plants (since our others have not exactly flourished during chilly, damp weather), we finished up the Farmer's Market tour with a balloon "flower" for my granddaughter!  She was very contented with some strawberries to enjoy, a cookie to share with her mom, and now her "gabloon".  Ahhh, another successful outing to Olympia Farmer's Market!
