Growers' Market

Again the Scarlett Runner Beans were a delight for many at the growers' market today.

We were lucky to have Dave Potts there today also with his huge selection of organic vegetables.
Dave has been growing organically for about eight years now and I converted my takings into carrots and potatoes from his stall.

For lunch I enjoyed perfectly scrumptious Duck and Wallaby Sausage Rolls made by Ut si cafe. I overheard some visitors from the mainland (Australia to the rest of you) remarking how delighted they were to be just stepping off the plane and being met by beautiful organic produce and seasonal gourmet fare.

And how about this gorgeous posy from my dear friend Lee (Killiecrankie Farm). We had a marvelous time chatting and sharing her Vegemite Scrolls and I always learn so much from this mine of information.
Today it suddenly dawned on me why I was not able to achieve these beautiful arrangements that she does; I'm too beguiled by big and flashy. I need to take a deep breath and look at the smaller blooms in a whole new light. Singly they are perhaps easily over looked but how beautifully they complement each other, working together like a good team.
I think there is something in that for all of us.


  1. Lovely thoughtful post Tanya. You are such an asset to our many ways. x

  2. had a lovely catch-up sitting in the sunshine today Tanya.

    Us girls went home and made rhubarb, peach, blackberry and apple crumble with custard - Middle Childs creation.

    Must slip a few more flowers in between the vegies at your place this Winter - you can make these posies !

    Wish I'd bought a few more of Collettes sausage rolls - yummo with that plum sauce on them.

  3. Hey Tanya, us 'mainlanders' absolutely enjoy beautiful produce..........wish I had of been stepping off the plane.
    So where are the pics of you and Lee?

    Those sausage rolls look absolutely delish. Hope you both had a good day and sold all your produce.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

    Claire :)
