Trip to Bellingham

This last weekend was the first weekend since last April with no market so we took advantage of that and went to the mainland for the first time since Christmas. We took the pumpkins from
daughter, Jennie's Waldron garden to them and brought boxes of vegetables to be shared among several family members. it is so very nice to be able to share the season's bounty with the family.
We got to visit with all three of our granddaughters and at least talk about the newest one who is planning to join us next May.
And, of course, we went to the Bellingham Farmers market where we bought some lovely pottery from 1 Heron Pond Pottery and a couple of Bella de Boskoop apples to try. The name alone was enticing and they were really tasty. We also ran into a former San Juan Island marketer who is making gorgeous willow baskets from willow she is growing on her farm, Willow Bend Baskets. That was really neat. We haven't seen her for ages and ages.

  1. I have been trying all night to leave a comment on your blog - I do so love to read about Farmers' Markets. The first one we ever visited was in Toronto where we bought and ate fiddle shoots. Since then we have been to many in both Canada and US - the produce is wonderful. Do enjoy your blog but can't always leave a comment because I can't get on to the right site. Managed it today!
