…yes, lots. The Amish graced me with 44 POUNDS of broccoli. The market has cauliflower, curly kale, Siberian kale, the last of the last of the VERY last of the bell peppers, SHUCKED oysters by the pint since there wasn’t a lot of enthusiasm for those in the shell last week. There are cherry pies, big and small, lemon, chocolate, and apple pies as well. There are even pumpkin and apple whoopee pies. Sour dough bread, raisin cinnamon bread, pumpkin rolls, and dinner rolls are just waiting to be snatched up, There are small potatoes ready to go with those green beans some of you will be having for Thanksgiving. Tomorrow, there will be turnips if I have to pick them myself and on Monday and late Wednesday, chicken and turkey. Leftovers will be going to the Harvest Kitchen in Farmville which, by the way, has very little in food donations for Thanksgiving. There are still Fuji, Nitney, Braeburn, and Stayman apples. When these are gone, I probably will not be getting more apples. There is a 5 lb. pack of ground bison at $6.80/lb., frozen already, but bet it would make a nice chili to have for a group of friends watching a football game.
Last, but not least, and not a food group, there are at least 6 beautiful border collie/blue heeler mix 7-week-old puppies on an Amish farm that I’m sure could be had at a reasonable price. I’m going to go back on Monday and take pictures. If you think you “might” be interested in a puppy, call me at 434-321-3674.
If I don’t see you at the market between now and Thanksgiving, hope your Thanksgiving will be filled with good food, laughter, and love.
