So I was lazy and got up a bit late, took my time to get ready, do my yoga, have breakfast, an headed to the farmer's market, somethign I have not been able to do yet this year because I was either without a car or in a rush at work. And it was sooo good ! It was the end of the market, and people had been scarce, so I got freebies and a good deal on heavenly strawberries. Fresh rhubarb and asparagus, ginger cheddar, smoked cheddar, and the plant guy was here.

Guys, bookstores ahve always been a dangerous zone for me, but I suspect gardening stores are becoming one, too. I went home with chard and lettuce (more grown that mine - I only sowed the chard yesterday), so that we don't have to wait as long. Then mint and coriander, carnation, a gooseberry and a raspberry bush. And another strawberry bush, because there will never be enoguh strawberries for our son. And RHUBARB. I will be good and not plant right now, as they predict below freezing temps during the night for two more days. that will give me time to find a place for everything. 
I am SO excited, this is starting to really be my dream garden.

Bonus : the littl eplants were cheap, organic, and locally grown. And I bought fresh italian pasta for tonight.

Your farmers' market sounds so nice! It's still too early for much here. Yay for rhubarb!

OMG YUM! That all sounds delicious. Whenever I am overseas or somewhere where the climate is mild, I always buy lots of fruit to eat because it tastes so much better. Those plants are going to be so fun later in the season!
