Ah, farmer's market season.
The onset of summer means not just vacations, warm weather and sun, but the bounty of Iowa's farms and gardens. And I love it.
I stopped by the Thunder Ridge Farmer's Market Wednesday. This early in the season, at one of the town's lesser-known markets, there were only three vendors. But those three offered bread, seedlings, basil, garlic, onions, cucumbers, beets, radishes, flowers, asparagus, rhubarb and more. I had to snap some photos.
