Back in Fargo

A few of you are wondering if Sport and I are back in Fargo.

Indeed we are, and today we decided to get into our summer ritual.

We started with a five-mile run (unfortunately the Red River is still flooding, so we ran to and around NDSU).

After a quick shower, we were off to Nichole's for some breakfast:


In case you are wondering what you are looking at, those are two coffee beverages the color of Capucin monks' robes, an almond croissant right out of the oven, and an apricot cherry scone.

Next, we stopped by the first farmer's market of the season:

Unfortunately, there were only root vegetables available, so we got some spring onions to take to our colleagues' farewell party.

Finally, we stopped by Zandbroz and Funky Junque to look for a couple of "thank you" gifts before we walked back home.

It's good to be home in Fargo.

What he doesn't mention is the second croissant that I went back for. I was hungry...

Yay--you updated your blog! The farmers market goes year-round here in Sac, but the pickin's in winter are pretty meager (unless you like salad, lots and lots of salad). We're getting out of "spring" vegetables and into summer ones--tomatoes, garlic, & squash. No peppers yet, but I'm trying to prepare myself for NM with lots of salsa!

I probably shouldn't mention that we have farmers markets all year in Honolulu and even have different picks throughout the week, eh? But still, they're best in summer! We have been picking up these amazing local mangoes the last couple of weeks...

But there are pros and cons to every climate: I truly miss rhubarb.

I see the snarky comments are coming in thick and fast from the more temperate climes.

Temperate climates might get you more farmer's markets, but let's just say I was happy to get up into the mountains this weekend and try to cool off.

I actually just noticed the first farmer's market near me this weekend too. It may have been going on for a while, but for solidarity, I'll assume we're on the same calendar.
