Sweet Saturday Joy

IMGP0633

     Around noon on Saturday , I remembered that I hadn’t been to the garden co-op to get our vegetables for the week.

     While the farmer’s wife and daughters packaged my vegetables, I was offered these zinnias which were growing around the garden’s perimeter. Zinnias are my favorite flower.

     I then loaded my car with all of this.

     I brought home salad mix, arugula, mustard greens, collard greens, okra, radishes, cucumbers, squash, baby eggplant, spinach, and basil.

     Sweet Saturday Joy.

It takes so little to make us happy, doesn't it? Those vegtables would make a beautiful bouquet as well. I love zinnias too...such a happy flower!

Now, tell me Laura, do you use up all that produce? My chickens would finish any leftovers. Currently, they get chopped, fresh spinach, greens or lettuce each day and love it.
