Again, within moments of that close encounter with the heron, I have a close encounter with a kingfisher. I was having a lucky day…more of a jackpot kind of day.
|Osprey - there is an unlucky blue gill in those claws|
|female Belted Kingfisher|
|Can anybody tell me the species of the bird?|
|Now that is one large mouth!|
|Be careful Snowball...|
|Buddy decided he did not want to be in the photo...so, he stayed out of camera view.|
Avalanche, Snowball and Becky's puppy, Samuel
|Snowball a.k.a. Mudball|
|the old hens look healthy and productive...notice their bright red and large combs|
but their egg production has been near nil for months - they need to go
|let me help, let me help|
|notice the small combs on these small chickens...a sign of young, non-laying female birds|
|see that pile of manure...a favorite tree of mine use to grow in that exact location|
check out a future blog to see what happened to my tree
|Look into the hole...see the eye peeking out?|
|Check out the table cloth...repurposed plastic feed sacks...ain't they cute? I reuse our old feedsacks for garbage bags. I guess I should rethink my recycling efforts.|
Elizabeth enticing Becky into buying some fresh vegetables.
|A picture is worth a thousand words...starting with colorful, flavorful and 'just picked' freshness. Yummy...take a bite!|
Sarah and what I call 'her oddities'. Go ahead...experiment!
John, the HERB man a.k.a. the Wednesday Market Manager You don't have to be a good cook to enjoy these dried and oh, so very aromatic and so very flavorful herbs. These niffy jars make great gifts, too! Amanda making some last minute display changes as market is getting ready to open.
Home baked goods - eat them now, or later, if they last longer than the trip home.
|The grill is heating and almost ready for the start of pupusa making - tasty pockets filled with meat, beans, cheese or vegetables - try all for a super flavorful mouthful. Made-to-order...you are just going to have to come to the market to try these delicious favorites of the regular market patrons. You, too, will become a repeat customer. And, John and Gloria provide seating for your convenience. They thought of everything including 'take-away' containers.|
|My Favorite - I purchase a serving of this refreshing drink every Wednesday - I'm addicted.|
|More ripe and ready to eat tomatoes...you can never have enough tomatoes and Jose has a great selection.|
Becky's Barnyard - it is difficult to display frozen meat (stored in the freezer just behind Becky) so she hopes the signage helps inform the public as to what farm products she is actually selling.
|Sandwich sign near the road side advertising some of her meat offerings|
