Wonderful Weekend

The weather in Charleston this weekend was just about perfect. My son and I spent saturday at the Charleston Farmers Market. There were lots of people there and more food than you could eat in a lifetime. We were right next to a lady selling Raw milk. She was giving out free samples to anyone that wanted to try it. You should have seen the looks on some of the faces. I have had Whole Raw Milk before so I didn't try it but I may the next time we are there. She sold out of all she had.

There were fruits and veggies galore there but I didn't have a chance to go and buy any. What drove me crazy all day was the smell of the Greek food that was drifting our way. I can eat some Greek food now. The pickle lady was there too and she makes the best pickles I have ever had. I got some free samples and plan on buying her out next time. I was a little dissapointed that we couldn't hear the band from our booth but I guess that may have been a blessing in disguise. I am sure it would have been hard to talk if the music had been louder.

I met some really nice people. There were people from all across America as well as France, Italy and Germany. I enjoy meeting people so it was a blast for me. I did talk so much that I now have a sore throat.

Sunday I played in the yard and got our plants in order. We put the day lilies out in rows and pulled some weeds. We almost have it all under control. I am making some artsy things too now for decorations. I will get some pictures taken soon. I was so busy I didn't have time to take any Saturday and Sunday the light just wasn't right. I think I figured out how to set my camera on "low light" now so hopefully that won't be a problem in the future.

Have a great day,

Greg

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. I spent Saturday with my daughter and grandson at a Dogwood Festival. We ran into a lot of people we do not get to see much so it was an enjoyable day for us too. Then Sunday was church and lazy time for my husband and me.

Farmers Markets are my favorite, ours doesn't start here until the end of the month, I can't wait!

The sun can be quite harsh when trying to take photos mid-day.....

Awww, your farmers market sounds like it was fabulous. Makes me incredibly jealous as I look out the window at the blowing wet snow falling right now. I hope you get to buy your milk & pickles next time, and enjoy them greatly!!!

Glad you had a beautiful weekend, Greg!!!

Greg, you sound so much better. I'd love to chat with you at the Farmer's Market. Would also like to try those pickles. Don't care much for store bought, but I like the home canned ones.

Hey Greg! I'll have to come by the Farmer's Market next time I'm in Charleston and see if you and your son are there!
Can't wait to see pics of your garden and garden decor!

Sounds like a fun day! I love meeting people from all over the world as well. Which is kind of why I came all the way here!

I like Farmers markets and always want to buy everything I see. And there is always someone there selling food where the aroma wafts through the air and makes you so hungry.

We had a warm weekend. But..it reminded me of how hot summer can get out here.

take care.

The farmers' market sounds like so much fun! I've never tried raw milk, but now I'm definitely intrigued. Happy Tuesday to you! :-)

Sounds like you had a fun weekend. Here in SoCal it was so hot, I didn't even want to go outside. Got up to 98 degrees! Can you believe that?

Isn't it neat to be out in the yard puttering around - oh how I love spring!

What a nice father and son day!

My youngest will sometimes say, "Mommy, when do I get to have Daddy day again?"

Translation: My husband takes our six-year-old somewhere special while I'm doing a book event. One time they went to a farm that had a haymaze and shot pumpkins through a tube.

I'm looking forward to your garden pictures!
