August Compositions = Red and Green and Everything in between – Farmers Market Finds

The weather is great in the city of Minneapolis this weekend. Even a little rain overnight. We are missing rain, which we need for the crops. We are lucky to have such plenty coming into the Farmers’ Market. It’s a great time to buy pickling cucumbers among the many other fresh vegetables, meats, mushrooms, cheese and peppers galore for those spicy dishes. All the produce looks beautiful.

The mushrooms were a big addition. Take a look at the Puffball Mushroom! It was maybe 13 inches across. The seller said some people were using the Puffball as pizza crust.

Yesterday I visited the farmers’ market on Lyndale Avenue and once again it was lively and there were many smiling people. In June I went early in the morning when there were less people.

Today I walked to Fair Oaks Park and was happy to see some rascally squirrels playing among the Black Walnut and Oak trees, Although I am aware that a Coopers Hawk is in my neighborhood. Evidence was confirmed when I saw one flying up the alley with a hapless rodent in his right claw and when I found the large poo bombs that were distributed on my car a few days ago!

There is a hint of Autumn in the air. Best get outside now as winter will soon be here.

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.

Have a good week wherever you be.
