Farmers Markets

But buying your vegetables at your local Farmers markets is a great alternative to growing your own.  

Now I like the idea of growing my own veggies, but find I am quite sporadic with the old veggie garden.  This year really has been a bit of a disaster, great weather for the beach but not so good for the veggie patch. We are on tank water so watering was not a option often this summer. Now with all this rain the garden is growing lots of weeds but not much else, due to it lacking the care and attention to actually produce something. 

Farmers Markets are a great way to buy fresh produce directly from the people who are growing it.  Also a great way to support your community as well, not to mention if you are a foodie a fun way to spend the morning.
