My First Give-Away!!

Our local farmer’s market is finally open! We wait all year for our favorite place to open. They are open from mid-July until just after Labor Day or mid-September.

We took a quick trip to see what has arrived so far. We saw honeyrock melons, green and red peppers, sweet corn, blueberries, peaches, apples, pears, pineapples, nectarines, bananas, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, garlic, zucchini, summer squash, cabbage, cilantro, and more!

We did more than just look. :-)

We bought:
4 (1 lb) green peppers
4 (1.14 lbs) zucchini
1 Honeyrock melon
5 limes
3 lemons
7 (3 lbs) D’anjou pears
6 (2.5 lbs ) Golden Delicious apples
3 (3 lbs) Spanish onions
1 lb sweet cherries
3 lbs bananas
4 lbs cucumbers
1.5 lbs baby potatoes
2.5 lbs. of red grapes
2 garlic bulbs
1 loaf European wheat bread
1 loaf Hungarian rye bread

For you visual people (I don’t mean that in a mean way, I’m one of you too), here is a picture of my first fruit, vegetable, and grain photo shoot.



Here’s the giveaway part. Guess how much we spent on all of this fresh produce goodness!

Leave me a comment with your best guess by midnight Sunday night (Eastern Daylight Time). Bloggers and non-bloggers are welcome, as are Canadians.

The winner will receive a package of 10 hand-made cards, made by yours truly. I will post a picture on Friday or Saturday. The winner will be drawn on Monday morning.
