market fresh

You can tell how behind I am on pics based on the fact that we are wearing coats and long pants in these pics. And despite those layers, I was still cold! The very thought!

This is my favorite vendor to buy plants from. Their prices are good, but the best part is that they clearly label all the different varieties of a given plant and include descriptions like what it tastes like, what kind of uses it's good for, and what conditions it's best grown in.

Despite the chill, Mike had to get one of his patented lime root beer sno-cones.
