a few things at the market







i love shopping at the farmers market just a block away from us. fresh berries, garlic greens locally made yogurt, fresh herbs and two more tomatoes plants one for dylan and the other for elle. I love how slowly the tables fill from spring greens to early summer berries and each week more color and textures are added. we are so lucky aren't we, i have been watching and reading allot more about the great depression, k and i talked about last night and how grey and grim it must have been then and how it must be for so many today. we have changed so much in our home to accommodate financial changes, but even when we feel a pinch we know we are no where near the struggles that people face.

Beautiful images. And yes, I feel like things are pretty tight now, but I still have fresh flowers, local fruit and a roof over my head!

In fact, I feel less harried now that I'm less focused on constant wishlisting and consumption and more on whole living.

Farmer's Markets, fresh produce - looks, feels, smells and tastes so good.

My dad grew up in not only the great depression, but in the heart of the dust bowl. Grandma talked about covering all doors and windows with moist rags at night, yet still 2 to 3 inches of dirt over everything by morning. So grey, so dry, so depressing - no green (only 1 old lilac survived). Yes, we are very lucky.

i have been learning about the great famine that drove many irish to the US.

i always wonder how i would react to a life that is spent existing from one day to the next.

my favourite part of your photos is the duck egg cardborad container.
