Linderhof


Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas


Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Farmer's Market Saturday - Week 2






We were at the Farmer's Market when it opened this morning.     More vendors including a dog biscuit one!   (which came complete with puppy -- the official taste tester?)

Our basket came home full as it usually does.     Great early produce at the market.    All of the spring crops even though our weather has been so unspringlike!

This Saturday, my basket . . .


Gooseberries (only a pint so I think a fool rather than a tart), onions, leeks, garlic, spinach, potatoes, peas, and radishes fill the basket this week.


Most is for dinner tomorrow night for we're having company and this fresh produce along with some local blueberries should make a nice holiday meal to go with the leg of lamb that will be the star.

Our Farmer's Market for a little community is a big Farmer's Market -- with many vendors and a big variety of both vegetables, baked goods and flowers.     Today, one of the History Day finalists was at the market performing her History Day skit.     What a great addition!

I was bemoaning the fact that I missed our farmer's market today as I had to complete a big writing project. But I have enjoyed looking at your produce, And surprisingly our garden is moving along and soon we will have produce!

Hi Martha! I love farmer's markets. We've got a few close-by that are wonderful. Your haul looks yummy!

Your basket looks full of lush produce! I visited our local market bringing home tomatoes, wonderful fresh beets, and some heliotrope. Then we headed for Kansas to get grand dog. On the way, stopped at Pittsburg's market for first time. It is small but so nice. Such lovely people too! I would have bought more but too hot to keep much in the car for all day. Got some wonderful muffins, just two and fresh blueberries. Added to cereal tonight this was supper after a long day. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

We went to our first farmer's market yesterday. I love this time of year. Happy Memorial Day weekend.

The basket of fresh produce is really appealing, I love seeing things like that. Haven't made gooseberry fool for years, I always seem to make pies or crumble. Time I made a fool again, such a lovely dessert for a hot summer day.

Your basket and all the fresh produce look divine. We're getting up early in the morning to take the kids blueberry picking! Can't wait!
