Local produce





That says "Rock on."
That evening, I gathered my harvest on the counter.
This is what I came up with.
Thanks to the person who gave me such helpful feedback on the rough drawings.

You have a very hip farmer's market.

A very nice post. Can't say I'd enjoy that particular recipe, but I certainly enjoyed the market and its people, and I always enjoy your drawings so much!

I have loved your trip...hope the grump is feeling better. Grumps put a damper on the day if you let them..and if he is sad, I feel for him, but he should still treat people with kindness.
I would love to eat what you cooked. Quinoa is one of my very favorite things to eat and it still is so good as a left-over..yum and good for you.
I am so happy to have you back. You enrich my life.....(..like Quinoa, you are good for the heart, soul and body).
p.s. the word verification for my comment is; spilit..something we never want to do in cooking.

He looks sad rather than mean. Now I want to go to that Farmer's Market!

I like the animated recipe, of sorts, as well as the way you brought the personalities of the marketers into the story.

The repast sounds amazing, and the farmers' market, a rare treat!

Hi Caroline,
This is my first visit to your blog- I found you by way of the Autumn 2008 edition of Artful Blogging, which I just discovered yesterday. Your blog appealed to me greatly, and is the first one I have visited from that publication.

I love your artwork, and how you tell your stories visually with your art!

What a great portrait of folks at the farmer's market! I like how you can give us a clue into their personalities by means of wonderful pictures and simple descriptions. Your quinoa and veggie dinner looks awesome, too!

Thanks for being here!

Lovely. And from your picture I can smell the fragrance of the asparagus/morel/other-great-things dinner. I want some! As for the seller of hickory nuts who looked mad or sad...perhaps he had bad health, or some other long-standing problem in his life. I guess we never know what other people are coping with. At least the Farmer's Market is a healthy and good place for him to be!

As usual, a great post. My favorite frame is the last one with the images swirled together. Very creative way and somehow it invokes my sense of smell and taste too! I'm impressed.

Love your work, thank you for sharing,
I have one question though, what is a "scape" or do you mean a scallop?
your recipe sounds very yummy, I just don't know what a scape is.

Hi Anonymous,
The word scapes was new to me too. They are the very beginning of onions. Clearly it is a local word or it is short-hand for something. Anyway, thanks for visiting!
