Poetry and Musings

I am chilling in Vermont. πŸ˜€ I come to this rural part of the country a couple times a year for a week or so with my parents.

Yes, you may be wondering if I LIKE spending that much time with my parents as a grown adult. To concisely put it: I do. πŸ˜€ It’s a breath of fresh air to be close to natureΒ (pun intended).

I live in Houston, Texas, a sprawling flat-land city with 6 lanes going in out of the city on both sides. I enjoy the hustle and bustle, but sometimes I enjoy the rustic life with hiking in cooler weather (it’s 100 degrees or more in a Houston in August now) and without the constant reminder of air pollution and busy cars traveling. But I love the busyness and blooming businesses of Houston. And I am happy to have the best of both worlds.

I went to a Farmer’s Market last Sunday in Stowe, Vermont. Stowe is an small town of less than 5,000 people. They have music playing a lot of the time at the Farmer’s Market, predominantly blues. They have booths set up with food, clothing, jewelry, etc. But the main attraction is their fresh produce of tomoates, cucumbers, apples, berries, etc. It’s from the very heart of the locals from their farm in Stowe or a surrounding Vermont town straight to the market to your kitchen. The locals are very friendly and informative about their products.

Here are some pics:


Have you been to a Farmer’s Market before?

  3. Oh, how lovely! 😍 Nice photos; it looks like you are having a wonderful time! πŸ™‚

    I can’t remember if I’ve been to a Farmer’s Market, but I know we have passed one on the interstate; I wanted to stop but we couldn’t that day. I’d love to go sometimes and get all sort of fresh veggies and fruit. Especially fruit, because we hardly ever get any fruit from our fruit trees – the squirrels get them all and I don’t know how to make them stop. 😜
