I spent some time last Sunday at the Headhouse Square farmers market with Shay. After we finished shopping, we stashed our veggies in the car for a little while so that I could wander around and take some pictures. Taking photos of the changing wave of seasonal produce is one of my favorite things. If you dig through my Flickr sets, you’ll find a bunch of pics from last summer, and now I’ve got my second set of this summer and up and ready for ogling.
After work today, I took my bike in to the shop for a tune-up, new tires and a front mounted market basket. This task has been on my to-do list since May and for one reason or another, I just couldn’t seem to make it happen. It becomes even more pathetic when I admit that the bike shop is exactly two doors down from the front entrance of my apartment building. I am thrilled to finally be able to check this on off the list and I’ll be picking it up sometime early next week. Next weekend, when I head to the farmers market, I’ll be doing it on my bright orange bike!
I’ve now had the indoor composter running in the apartment for about a month. It is amazing how it turns my veggies scraps and fruit bits into usable soil. However, I used some of it to pot some new herbs last weekend and they died immediately. I’m wondering if the pH balance of the mix is really off or something. Whatever the problem is, it’s a little disturbing and makes the further utility of the compost I produce a little worrisome.
