Our farmers markets are Monday and Tuesday: Monday for Bedford, around the corner from our house, and Tuesday over in Lexington, accessible by bike. We have to go to Lexington because the Bedford market, which started up last year, is still a little sparse. So today I did. The problem, though, is in knowing what to get. You can't make a shopping list for the farmers market, because of course you can't be sure what will be there and look good. But without a list you need to have the mental acuity to make an on-the-fly decision about what to buy, something which I don't necessarily possess at the best of times and especially not when I was trying to distract a howling baby between the hours of 6:30 and 11:00 pm yesterday evening. So I stood around and looked stupid, and then bought some blueberries and cherries and new potatoes and tuscan kale, which is all well and good, but I really should have gotten some cucumbers as well. Next week.
There would be market pictures, because they are always lovely, but the camera is out of batteries. I rummaged and rummaged and finally found the rechargables, and then finally found the charger, and then charged the batteries for several hours, and then I took one shot and they died. Not even enough charge to retract the lens. So... another time.
