Midwinter Merriment: Frequent the Farmers’ Market

Here it is – a countdown til spring. From now until the first day of spring, I will post ways to make the dreary days of midwinter a little more merry.

 Day 26: Frequent the farmers’ market.

26_Farmers_MktWe are so fortunate to have several year-round farmers’ markets here in Seattle and it truly lifts the spirits to bundle up and go to them in the winter. The vendors and farmers appreciate it and it seriously warms my garden nerd heart to see so much bounty. Dark leafy greens and root vegetables abound! There are eggs there too. (Do you hear that, ladies? I’m buying eggs from other chickens! Geesh!)

Day 27: Eat Root Vegetables Disguised as Cake!
Day 28: Be a Garden Show Goer.
Day 29: Drink more hot chocolate.
Day 30: Create a springtime “advent” calendar.
