Monday, Monday…

Monday, Monday…

The weekend went far too quickly as it zoomed by at practically warp speed! (Beam me back to Friday, Scotty!! That Manhattan was so tasty as were the Friday eats!)


It was a weekend with lots of some…

Some unknitting and some knitting – I had to unknit a few rows of my Pincha, I think I missed a wrap, which created a troublesome hole. No worries though, the unknitting of short rows is not overwhelming. I am back on track now and again breezing along.

Some spinning – I managed to spin quite a bit on my little drop spindle, it helped that the weather was nice for outdoor spinning!

Some gardening – After cleaning up the vegetable beds, I worked some compost in to the soil. I also got my potatoes started in the pots! And, the seeds I started last week are all sprouting.

And… some disappointment – Perhaps that has something to do with eagerly (anxiously even) awaiting the beginning of the farmer’s market only to be overwhelmed with sticker shock… serious sticker shock! And, thinking how ironic that everyone is charging exactly the same amount for things. Hello, I am not paying $5.00 a dozen for eggs!

We were not disappointed in our trip to Janoski’s though. Welcome back, Asparagus! You have been seriously missed!

Outside of that, it is a nose to the grindstone kind of Monday. I have a long list today and some extra caffeine to help me stay focused!

Tell me, how are you staying on track today?

It was had a fabulous year at our farmer’s market and add to that the abundance that was our garden this year and that makes lots of good food!

Sadly, Saturday was the last day our favorite farmer will be at the market  and we will miss him but look forward to June when he will be back at the market again! However, over the past weeks, I have been stocking up on winter squash, pumpkins, onions, and garlic. We were gifted a huge bag of apples, which will be cooked this week. However, the big winner was the 50 lbs. of potatoes that we got for practically nothing.

Yes, you read that right – 50 pounds – which is A LOT of potatoes…

When life gives you potatoes, the only thing to do is to make some hearty potato soup!
