Farmer's Market Day

Saturday I went to the Farmer's Market.  I loaded up on fruits and vegetables which included salad mix, fennel, celery, carrots, onions, green beans, purple beans, cantaloupe, strawberries, Flathead cherries, zucchini, basil, potatoes (red, purple and yellow), green peppers and cucumbers.

I was so glad to see Dixon Melons here with their cantaloupes.  The family suffered a horrible year with a robbery and then a couple of hailstorms.  I heard from another farmer at the farmer's market that the Hetticks are only going to sell their melons at the Farmer's Market because of the loss.  I let the folks there at the market know our support. 

I went over to the Pet Expo thing over at Caras Park to see if PetsMart was there this year.  Last year, they were handing out free stuff toys.  Unfortunately they weren't there, but I did pick up a free tennis ball, a free flying disc and a dog cookie that I shared with Kira and Kodiak.
