Beautiful Weather and Farm Envy


 We have had a couple of gorgeous days here lately.  Nice and cool at night and not too warm during the day. 

 I could get to like summer if all the days were like these.

 We hit the road yesterday to go to a farm market which I read about. Some farmers must have known this weather was coming because lots of them were cutting their hay.

 I never found the farm market but I did manage to buy 4 dozen eggs that are so fresh, I had trouble cracking them this morning. The shell would crack but the membrane was hard to break.

 A Mennonite woman was selling them and told me the hens were her son's project to make money.  I thought that was so nice.

 I think I will head out tomorrow in search of another farm market. It is so pretty to drive out in the country in this weather. I need zucchini for the shelter and my plants are still only producing male blossoms.  Has this ever happened to any of you?  My plants look healthy and there are lots of blossoms but no female ones.

 And now for the farm envy.  I LOVE this place. Click for a closer look.

I have barn envy too.
