{August 11, 2012}   8/11 Farmer’s Market! It’s My Birthday!

Farmer’s Market 8/11

Today is my birthday! I should have slept in, but the farmer’s market was beckoning to me, so I got up early and went.  Here’s what I got:

Tiny potatoes, figs, garlic: $8.50 (First time we’ve had to buy garlic since we harvested ours back in June)

Huge eggplant, onions, purple cherry tomatoes: $7.50

Goat Cheese: $4.28

Raspberries: $5 (Got these since it’s my birthday- two fruits instead of one 🙂

Grand Total: $25.28

I also got some more stuff for canning:

$22 for everything pictured here: $4/lb for peppers and $1.50/lb for tomatoes.  Ended up with over 3 lbs of peppers and about 6lbs of tomatoes.  I’m going to be making jalapeno pepper jelly, pickled peppers and a batch of HOT salsa.


Hubby is making rack of lamb, potatoes and who knows what else for dinner tonight. YAY birthdays!

Yay for birthday raspberries!

Happy Birthday! Rack of lamb sounds like the perfect way to celebrate your special day 🙂
