This weekend my bestie, Kalin, is here visiting and it's g-l-o-r-i-o-u-s! The best part is that we're such good friends and comfortable enough with each other that I can go about my day as I normally would and she helps out with the babe without being asked. So appreciated.
We spent the morning and part of the afternoon food shopping. We went to the Farmer's Market, Naesgaard's Farm, and then out to Collin's Farm to look at the goats, and to try and find eggs (which they had none of but we bought a cabbage instead).
Collin's Farm is probably one of the most diversified farms in the Valley, just about 5 minutes out of town. Every Friday afternoon I get an email from Bob Collins telling me about their week, what's coming up on Saturday morning (they usually have some kind of market going, and sell breakfast or lunch, and sometimes cupcakes!), and how their season is going, or with comments on stuff going on in the world or our community. It's really a great digest and a good reminder to head out there after the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings. Collin's Farm also doubles as a campground in the summer season (they host weddings and stuff) so the place was overrun with tourists and cars. But just the right place to be when you want to see baby goats and a few donkeys.
Did you see any farms this weekend?
