The Masterpiece by Javan

The Masterpiece by Javan

We are born into the world like a blank canvas and each person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes his mark upon our surface - So it is that we develop - But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work. For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a Masterpiece.

Colours of the The Farmer's Market

 A day at the Farmer's Market is a day in the sunshine of color...

Our Farmer's Market is operated by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture
 and is open 365 days a year


German Johnson tomatoes are probably the ugliest tomatoes in North Carolina - but the tastiest we have ever had. IMHO



Yes, Scotty McCreery is a North Carolina native and we let people know how proud we are of him everywhere we can post a picture - 
the Farmer's Market Restaurant is no exception.
I would venture to say that Scotty has eaten at the Farmer's Market Restaurant ...
just like we did - maybe we even sat at the same table.


Look at the colors - still very pricey at $1.00 each, but the picture was worth a thousand words.  Wouldn't this make a beautiful quilt?  I just love all the colors.
We did come home with 1/2 bushel shelled Butter Beans for the freezer - cantaloupe, Ruston Red peaches, German Johnson and field grown tomatoes, lots of blueberries for freezing, sweet little pickling cukes, okra, Sweet Devotion corn and sweet potatoes.  This is just good eating.

We plan to put some of these little jewels in our next yard - love the the green ones and first time we have seen them up close. Love all colors of Hydrangeas. These do make a statement. I also happen to be very fond of red ones. Wow - options everywhere.

We stopped counting how many kinds of eggplant that were offered. They say these lighter color ones have smaller seeds, no need to "sweat" them and are milder in flavor. They will be very tasty with some fresh tomatoes.


Very enjoyable day and lots of vegetables came home with us and the flowers were gorgeous.


Judy C sends best wishes on your peaceful journey - hope it cools off soon.

Love a good farmer's market, but I tend to visit them more when I travel than when I am home. Our local one is only Saturday morning and that is such a big chore time around here.
The colors of those peppers are begging to be a quilt!
: )

Love Farmer's Markets - particularly when far from home and we can find things not available to us locally...

The peppers are a knockout!
