Farm Fresh Bounty

Gary took me to the farmer's market this morning and he carried the produce while I picked out the farm fresh bounty. Never had home grown sweet potatoes before, can't wait for those. And need to look up Meredith's recipe for eggplant. We've been getting the white half runner beans all summer long. And look at those blackberries, they were fresh picked yesterday. Got the last of the garlic this season; been having Caesar salad once a week. I have to stand up to type cause I can't raise my arm up but it's not hurting as bad and is a little more flexible.

Luckily I had tiles made for my class so was able to practice the surface treatment on them yesterday. I see I need to add another hood line perpendicular with the ornament, Remember our Chevy flatbed?

Here's a mockingbird singing away. Now I think I need to go have a few blackberries. Thanks for reading and for all your comments and good wishes.


  1. Years ago, before he had his front teeth capped, my brother in law whistled incessantly. The dogs knew he was home when the whistle exited the truck. The mockingbirds figured this out and spent endless afternoons taunting the dogs by whistling like Tome coming home.

  2. what a wonderful story, I saw a program on TV where mockingbirds lived near a quarry they learned to imitate the bulldozers and trucks, amazing birds they are.

  3. I love farmer's markets this time of year with all the fresh produce coming in, especially the berries.

    What a beautiful classic flatbed!

  4. Great truck are an artist. Sometimes we forget that, don't we? Oh yes, I just reaped a bunch of great produce at our Tailgate this morning. So glad you are feeling better!

  5. Glad the shoulder has eased up a little.

  6. Lovely drawings. Glad the pain is easing up.

  7. Love farm fresh veggies and fruits!

  8. I hope the pain continues to ease and the flexibility returns.
    My mother's cockatoo used to imitate the dog up the road (and send it into a frenzy). It could also imitate my father's 'coming home' whistle.

  9. You're going to make rats with sauce, yes!
    I hope you are better soon.

  10. Hi Teresa, thanks, we were glad to sell that truck due to all the hassle getting it restored. It was a beauty.

    Hi Barb, thanks most of the pain is going but still very limited in my movements.

    Hi Dennis, thanks, I couldn't believe how much it hurt, worst I've ever had except the back.

    Hi Michele, thanks, hope they turn out in the kiln soon.

    Hi Rian, thanks, this week there was a lot of variety for sure.

    Hi Elephant's Child, thanks, birds are amazing creatures and so glad we have them. I hope the flexibility comes soon.

    Hi Meredith, thanks, rats so funny, I hope it mends well soon too.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
