Farmer's Market

Today I'm bringing you images of the other kind of fiber.


I took these photos at the Farmer's Market a couple of weeks ago. The colors were a real visual treat. I love the purple bell peppers.
You can see how small these eggplants are next to the peppers.
This red and green combination is the essence of summer.
I grow cherry tomatoes in my yard since they have a short growing season, but they've only just recently begun to give fruit. This is the one downside to living on the coast. The farmers who sell here are from the inland areas. Just 5 or 10 miles to the east, the weather is much warmer and sunnier.

They sell flowers and plants at the market for good measure.
These beauties remind me that the fall is upon us.

Oh, these colors are glorious!

If you have a chance, take a look at my June 9 blog entry. My Vegetable Soup quilt looks just like your purple-red-green-yellow
peppers!

Luscious, lovely colors, Barbara...thank you!
Those wee bitty eggplants are so CUTE!
And those squash at the bottom look like Red Kuris to me...we grow them, too. Buy some. They are sooooo good.

I would never have thought peppers came in so many colors! That market was a treasure-trove of colors! Thanks for sharing the pics.

Great fall colors--something we rarely see around Houston.

Thanks, Barbara, for the autumn memories from back home. I hope that you and the four cats are all well.

These photos are so crisp and brilliant; they would make a wonderful quilt if printed on fabric. I want to try growing some of those little eggplants next summer.
