Farm Fresh Friday #8

Welcome to Farm Fresh Friday

This week on the prairie...


My prized lillies are wide open 
and on parade!!....

TWO weeks ahead of normal...

can you believe it??





I've been showing them off
to my 4th of July visitors 
for 8 years!!

My sister-in-law gave me 3 bulbs shortly
after we were married and we moved to this farm.

Every year (on the 4th of JULY!!) I show her how magnificent
 they are and how they've multiplied!!

This has been such a weird year weather-wise...

I'm a little disappointed,
by the time our company shows up
this year,
they'll just be a bed of topless stalks!!

I take pictures of them everyday,
maybe my guests will have
to settle for a slide show instead!




Anyway....

Sall and I got to the FARMER'S MARKET

(that strawberry rhubarb pie sucked us in!
I have a feeling we'll be regular customers
for the rest of the summer!)

However, we didn't get there 
quite early enough...
the Strawberry/Rhubarb was sold out
so 
we had to settle for 
Raspberry/Rhubarb instead...

mmmm,
too bad it was so good,
we demolished it before
I had a chance to take
any pictures!!



This time there were more vendors
and more baked goods...

something for everyone...





I never leave a Farmer's Market 
empty-handed!!

I love FRESH and I love
 supporting a farmer/gardener!

I hope the market in your 
neighborhood is up and running...

and we'd love it if you could share it 
here at 
"Farm Fresh Friday"!!!

This is a place to share all things FRESH,
 homemade and/or home-grown.
There is no rule that it has to be made by you or grown by you,
just the fact that it was 
hand made or grown by somebody
and not mass-produced or imported from Timmbucktu is good enough for us!!

Your lilies are pretty and I'll bet have a nice fragrance. All of mine are gone, the red lily beetle has decided that they're too tasty to pass up and they had to be pulled out.
I've not thought about raspberries and rhubarb together in a pie, probably just as yummy as with strawberries.

The lilies are gorgeous. Mine are days, if not weeks, away from blooming. I have two star gazers that I can't wait to see how they perform. They bloomed last year and were amazing, but this year the plants are yellowish. Do you have any thoughts on why? Too much water? And other that I have got hail damage that knocked off the emerging buds. Drat. The pies sound so delicious. I have planted strawberries, raspberries, and rhubarb. The rhubarb produces well, but the berries are still trying to find their way in the garden. Perhaps next year. Have a great weekend.

How pretty! Our garden here in southern Ohio is spectacular this year, too. I think it is because of our mild winter!

JourneyLeaf said...

Good morning! You visited my blog from Shutter Sisters and invited me to post. Mine isn't about farmer's markets, but it is about homegrown produce and flowers. :o)

Gail @ Faithfulness Farm said...

EVERYTHING is running early this year for us in South Central Nebraska. Your lillies are lovely :)

Blessings!

TexWisGirl said...

Your lilies really are lovely! I also never leave a farmers market empty handed, and your pictures are exactly why--A good reason to support the local growers!!

Joy Tilton said...

Your lilies are just gorgeous! Mine never do very well since we have a deer problem, they love them too! I would have loved one of those rhubarb pies, my fav! Come visit me on top of Granny Mountain...
