ABC Wednesday ~ F is for…

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.

F is for Farmers Market where we shopped this last Saturday.

 

The Farmers Market in Old Town Camarillo, California

 

F is for fruit. We have fields of strawberries in our town and strawberry stands where we can buy them all during the week fresh from the fields when they are in season.

 

F is for flowers the more unusual and flamboyant

 

and some more fragrant flowers

We bought purple cauliflower, artichokes, brussel sprouts, and limes. (Nothing starting with F) but all very fresh and flavorful. The artichokes were wonderful. My husband likes to have his with mayonnaise and I love mine with Ranch Dressing. Yum! I made a cauliflower soup that was blended with onion and garlic. (strange to eat purple soup). It was very good.

 

This is a strawberry field near my home. This made me want to sing “Strawberry Fields Forever

 

This is a strawberry stand in my town that sells fresh berries from the adjoining field. So luscious, sweet and juicy!

For more ABC Wednesday photos go visit Mrs. Nesbitt all the way in the UK!

  1. Farmers Markets open in February–and you are homesick for Washington?!? I think yours could make me homesick for California, though I’ve been FROM it much longer than I was in it.

  2. Lovely collection of pics. I wish we had a farmers’ market here. There’s a local produce market this weekend, which is almost a farmers’ market, so I may take a wander along to it. Happy ABC Wednesday!

  3. I haven’t seen such a gorgeous array of fruit and flowers in a long, long time. The contrast to our local farmers market, even on its best day, is stark.

    If I went there, I’d need a cart to haul things home! Eat a strawberry for me!

  4. Great photos! I knew I forgot something else I wanted to post and that was the fresh fruit from the Farmers market here. Oh well.

    You asked if Fort Vancouver was in Vancouver, Wa. . . YES it is! The fort WAS Vancouver, Wa when being first settled! They are doing archeological digs and replacing all the old buildings that used to be there with authentic materials. They have dramatizations at Thanksgiving and Christmas and during the year, it is free while they charge a fee in the summer.

  5. Enjoyed seeing your pictures of your Farmer’s Market.Those strawberries looked quite yummy.The flowers are so pretty.Our farmer’s markets don’t open till the middle of summer when the local farmers start harvesting their crops.

  6. If you don’t tell anybody, I was once accomplice in stealing ONE orange off a tree in Redlands south of LA.

    I am a bit late in commenting, but better late than never!
