I mentioned something a few weeks ago about the first Dane County Outdoor Farmer's Market of the year. I also vaguely promised a post about it. Unfortunately, that was last weekend and the weather was horrible. We did brave the freezing rain to check out the market, but I didn't take any pictures and we didn't buy much.
This Saturday was much better. The sun was out, it was supposed to be 50 degrees, and more vendors showed up with more stuff. Yay!
A bummer for us is that right now, while its still pretty cold and early spring, the majority of vendors are meat, cheese, and bread products. Which are NOT allowed on this diet. Its hard to walk by the rows of cheese curd samples and case upon case of cinnamon rolls without cracking. But on the bright side, it gives us something to look forward to when my diet ends and I anticipate gaining 5 pounds.
Then we walked around the square and bought spinach, arugula, cucumbers, maple syrup and 2 herb plants (mint and basil).
This little lady bug wanted to come home with us. It did. We forgot about it. Its probably lying dead somewhere around here...
