I am off work for the summer, and realized early this afternoon, that it's time to post for SkyWatch Friday. I went out and took lots of photos, like I always do, and didn't find any I wanted to post. I remembered I was planning on going to a near by park for a Farmers' Market, put on by Community Crops, a group that coordinates community gardens. I don't go to this one as often as the downtown one on Saturdays. It's smaller, but I found a few things I don't grow. The skies were lovely, and I went around snapping pics, listening to the band of teenagers from a rec center who call themselves "School of Rock", as in the movie.
Not all the vendors were from Community Crops. Those in the next 3 are not. This isn't a great photo, but I wanted to include the table of plants, where I bought an eggplant and some annual asters, because they needed a home. The vendor must have planted them herself, because they are in a container that does not have individual cells.
This woman has been a farmer/gardener/business woman for years. I was a regular customer, and worked for her one summer, over 3o years ago, in an open air fruit/vegetable market she and her husband used to have. They also sold the sweet corn they were famous for growing, and still do.
The woman on the left is the director of Community Crops.
