Market Day

I returned from Soulard Market this morning totally and completely allergized.  Something is in the air…..

But today’s haul =

  • a pound of new fingerling potatoes
  • five ears of corn
  • a bushel of peaches to be frozen (seconds that need to be worked up quickly)
  • ten pounds of pickling cucumbers for a second batch of lime pickles
  • some lychee fruit
  • lemons and limes
  • three hostas for the garden next to the front porch
  • a pound of ground pork
  • a pint of yellow cherry tomatoes (SO GOOD!) from my favorite vendor
  • a loaf of sourdough bread

And a ham and Swiss quiche that I have devoured for lunch.

Last week's flowers are still looking so good that I bought none today.
