Last week I caught the tail end of the farmer's market at Lake Tahoe. I didn't realize when it was so we just happened to be going by at about 1 pm when a lot of the vendors had already left and the rest were packing up, we stopped anyway because I just love farmer's markets.

We got some beautiful, large purple onions to grill that night. I also got some oranges that looked kind of rough but tasted good. We also got some peaches. Unfortunately, the weather in this region has not been great this spring so the produce was not very good looking. I did not see one tomato and the green beans looked terrible.

Now on to my great purchase. I have been thinking for a while I would like to grow some herbs, and lo and behold there was a guy selling plants. I got sweet basil, lemon basil, and flat leaf parsley. So Friday when I went to Carson City to get groceries, I need to get some potting soil and pots for my herbs...guess what??? I found more herbs. So now I also have sage, oregano, and rosemary. I have been using them in everything and really am enjoying my little herb garden!!
