The best radishes I've ever tasted! And although the radishes to the right are called "Breakfast" Radishes, Patty said that is only a name, and she's never eaten them for breakfast.
The last Fall Farmer's Market took place November 1st. I discovered Bee Natural Farm has been turned over to Justin Taylor. Long time organic farmers Phil and Gwin, have moved to the big city (of Fairhope) and Justin will now operate the farm. He plans to resume the co-op sometime in the future. For now, stop by Bee Natural for honey, fresh organic produce and in - season flowers.
Oh, and eggs will also soon reappear. Go chickens, Go!
Zinnias and Goldenrod.
Word on the street is, Shannon, the baker of amazingly delicious Cream Cheese Pound Cakes will be set up at the Candy Cane Market, benefiting Children of the World Adoption Agency, selling a variety of baked goods and taking orders for Christmas side dishes. I can't locate a firm date on this year's event, so if someone has it, please let me know. It's always great fun.
The last time I bought Shannon's pound cake, I hid the last piece for myself! - Hey, don't judge me! I live with teenagers that eat everything! It's a matter of survival around here.
Patty grew the radishes, kale, and flowers in the top photos,
but she popped over to a neighboring tent to get these beautiful carrots.
I told her she looked like the Carrot Queen with her bouquet on her arm!
Lettuces ready for a winter garden.
Wish it would stay open for a few more weeks. Wish more people would know about it. Wish it were on a Saturday morning. Wish I could get more Cream Cheese Pound Cake from Shannon.
Wish you well until next spring, farmers.
