So yes, you all guessed correctly! I went to Seattle last week on a spur-of-the-moment visit to see my cousin, who’s been out there for 3 years now. Her parents decided to make the trip before they get busy with fall field work and asked if I wanted to come along.
They only gave me a week’s notice, and I hesitated because of all the things going on here at our farm (just got 150 broiler chicks, and there’s the big melon project), but then I decided that there will always be a reason not to go so just go already. So we went on Monday and came home Friday, and had a wonderful time.
I’m going to go out of order here and share my favorite pictures from the farmers market which we shopped on Wednesday, day 3 of our trip.
The flowers were amazing.
No matter what fruit or vegetable you were craving, it could be found here. Not all locally grown, of course, but much of it was. We took home 2 different kinds of cherries, 2 different kinds of peaches, and some plums.
…and shell fish. I love me some shell fish. Too bad I don’t actually know how to cook it.
After the market we took a harbor cruise, which was really nice. And that night we dined on fresh seafood. Crab cakes, yum!
More Seattle pictures to come. And then I’ll resume the basement retrospective. And then maybe one of these days I’ll get back to being a farm blogger
