Support Local Farmers!

This morning we went to one of the local farmers markets in historic Old Colorado City. It was a beautiful day in Bancroft Park.

Check out the goods! We got everything you see here for $10. Asparagus, new potatoes, red bell peppers, green bell peppers, anaheim peppers, onions, tomatoes, acorn squash, zucchini, cucumber - Mmm!

I encourage everyone to eat and buy locally - or better yet - plant a garden. The food you eat will be more nutritious, and you will decrease your carbon footprint.

And...the dishes you make using your fresh produce will be beyond yummy!! Check out my husband's pico. It was fantastic!

I challenge you to grow some of your own food. Container gardening is a great way to start. If you simply don't have the space, support local farmers! You will be glad you did!
