Today's errands brought a friend and I to a different farming area, this time unfortunately without my camera or cell phone . However, I did bring home something to remember our trip there....
So love small farmers, farm stands and farmer's markets!
Photo: chocolate cherry and snowberry tomatoes (so yummy on salads!) and three varieties of summer squash (on tomorrow's menu). Not pictured but soon to be enjoyed: lavender honey and supersweet corn:)

Much of our year the blackberry is a formidable foe,
invading gardens, woods and fields alike.
But then comes the time where our PNW foe 'redeems' itself and comes bearing gifts;
and for those few weeks we smile and bid it welcome
as we fill bowls and pans with summer's sweet fruit!
Tomorrow these priceless gifts will become a cobbler (or possibly 2 mini cobblers) by my DH's request. YUM, I am already craving it!
