Saturday Farmer's Market - 7/13/13

Saturday Farmers Market is a weekly event originally created by the beautiful and nature loving, Heather at Capricious Reader. It's a weekly event that celebrates gardening, be it your own garden or gardens around you; local food, be that at your local farmers market or at a restaurant or festival that celebrates eating locally; a recipe that you've created using fresh ingredients or a whole cookbook; and veggies, flowers, herbs and farm goods galore. Anyone and everyone can participate. It was originally started within the book blogging community but I'd love to see it expand beyond as well. You don't have to have a garden or grow veggies to participate, just post about how veggies, flowers, local farms, etc. have impacted your life this week. You'd be surprised! It may be too cold to grow things and it may be too hot to grow things, but you may just want to post about the plans you have for when the ground thaws. Or maybe even share with us how your community aims to keep things more sustainable or even about the local trails and nature offerings around you! This will also connect really well with Mrs. Beth Fish's Weekend Cooking ;) Thanks Heather for letting me take over the reigns for this wonderful idea that spawned from your creative brain :) Feel free to leave the link to your post in the Mr. Linky below, spread the word, and come back to read everyone else's posts as well! 

Because your host has been very forgetful and doesn't want to let yet another week go by without a post, I'm giving you a wordless version of Saturday Farmer's Market this week :p Plus, there are some particular beautiful things going on in my little garden right now and the pictures speak for themselves too :) Feel free to share your posts with us too on how your gardens are doing and leave your link in the Mr. Linky below!

I always love your garden baby boy! just remember if you ever come to florida you'd better have a bag full of your tomatoes!!!!

So I know that you're being wordless, but I do have a question about your tomatoes. Do they split while on the vine? I have a few that look like they're split (not from critters) and I'm not sure what to do with them. Are they still good?

I'm afraid my tomatoes aren't doing so well. The heat is the main culprit now and what the heat isn't getting the critters are. Scott finally put up some bird netting for me so we'll see if that helps. If not then we'll know that we have ground critters as well. UGH. I have to keep telling myself over and over that this year was all about learning.

Your flowers are gorgeous!!

I love this post! My garden is going through some things right now. The only good things are that my roses and cactus are blooming.

My poor garden. First of all it's all flowers and herbs, no veggies. Second, we had a month of torrential rains and now it's like a switch was turned, and we're having 90+ heat with oppressive humidity. I can't seem to get out there and do the needed maintenance.
