The Farmer's Market

Last weekend the kids and I ventured out to the local Farmer's Market. It is small, but we still found plenty of goodies there. Perfectly ripe watermelon, deliciously sweet cherry tomatoes, local honey.....I also bought a couple of small tomato plants from a local farmer. I have never grown tomatoes before so I am going to blog about this little experience. We will see if we can get some fruit out of these before the season ends. It is already August, but it will be hot here in North Carolina well into the fall. My biggest challenge has been keeping my 2-year-old out of the plant pot. Yes, we have re-planted the tomatoes upwards of 6 times now. It's a good thing I bought an extra bag of potting soil.....
