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

Saturday mornings we're up early for we head out the door before 8 to our Farmer's Market.     It's a rite from May through October (and on Tuesday afternoons as well).     It's on the plaza between our Historic Fort and our downtown -- a perfect place for a Farmer's Market.

Produce, meat, eggs, plants, bread, jams and jellies, honey, baked goods abound at our market.    And over the years, the vendors are now friends.     

This Saturday, my market basket . . .

Vegetables and fresh eggs as well.

For meals until Tuesday -- beets, Swiss chard, onions, snow peas and a golden cheddar cauliflower (I passed by the purple one but would that not make a wonderful vegetable tray -- a purple and a yellow cauliflower with a good vegetable dip?)

During summer, we always eat well at Linderhof.

Oh how fabulous. Fresh from the garden always tastes sooooooooo good, so much better than the store. Hugs, Marty

You have some great gardeners/farmers supplying your market. Looks great!

I can honestly say that I have never seen a cauliflower like that, what a treasure. Is there a different taste?

BTW, read your class post as well, wonderful idea for a class. How would you like to come to my area and do a cooking/herb class in the Fall?

We are three weeks away from the opening of our local farmers' market. I'd love to have your basket of vegetables sitting on my kitchen counter right now!!

We do the same. Today , however, there were not many farmers or we did not get our fresh eggs. I did get some things. I think the cold, rainy weather must have stopped some?
