To market, to market...

It's here - prime farmer's market season!

It was jammed today, and I waded through gawkers and strollers and strollers to get my Concord Grapes. I saw these amazing flowers (with cockscomb, zinnea, and basil - now on Alexis's nightstand as she recovers from a call night), and this crazy, wonderful pumpkin. My right arm is all jelly from carrying it the five blocks to my car, but I love it so much I haven't yet been able to take my eyes off its magical undulating ridges.
