Because I had left my Garden unattended for three days i had some cleaning to do. There so happens to be a big tree next door, truth be told i'm not to sure the type of tree but i will find out, this means that i constantly have leaves and seeds falling into my garden.
Well as i was cleaning i realized that if i had decided to wait one more day i would have had a bigger weed problem. These seeds had begun to sprout, hopefully i got them all before they took root.
I have always been a fan of the Farmer's Markets, but i haven't always had access to them. This year i told myself i needed to go as much as possible, and decided the only that would happen would be to work for one of the markets. It just so happened that the Green City Market was hiring, at the time. So you can find me at the Market every Wed. and Sat.
This weekend i just couldn't help myself, and i had to do some shopping.
I had to buy some of that Beautiful Michigan Asparagus.
And who could resist Capriole Chevre Goat Cheese..Delicious!
The Mesclum mix also looked to good to pass up.
I also have become a great fan of Blue Marble Family Farm's dairy products. Their Drinkable plain yogurt is by far my favorite. (pics soon)
I will most likely make a Salad today of the ingredients listed above, and an omelet tomorrow of the Asparagus and Goat Cheeese.
This Last Saturday, there was a reported 5,200 people at the market!! thats great to hear. I know for a fact that I'm not the only one anxiously awaiting strawberries, because they sold out in the first 15 min!!!!!! I work at the market and i couldn't even get any! I'll have to try my luck on Wednesday As the Weeks go by, i will post more and more on the Green city Market.
The Past few days, for me, have been a little hectic. There was a lot i had to do but not enough time to do it all, and unfortunately my Garden went neglected for three days. Luckily nothing was lost or damaged.
On a lighter note, while i was gone my Oregon Sugar Pod Pea decided to fruit! Just goes to show you the Beauty of mother nature.

These Pictures were taken today in my Garden, by my girlfriend Carolina Montesino, of my Purple Cherokee Tomatoes...I tried taking the pictures myself but she just has this way of seeing through the eye of the camera, better than anyone i know.
More pictures of the Garden soon!!!

So the weather has definitely been a lot nicer lately, which means i have also been busier than normal, my garden is well in the works, i will have more updates in the next few days on what's planted, problems i've ran into, and my trips to the market..
