from the country

hi lovelies. you know those days where you just can't quite get it together? today is one of them for me. i traveled all weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the amazing catskills and one of my favorites places on earth...and on the way home, we stopped at a dirt-cheap farmstand where i got a veritable bevvy of things for next to nothing, my fear of produce pressure be damned. i have to tend to them all tonight...washing, prepping, cooking, cutting, repotting, etc. i don't know how i'll also unpack and tidy up, but it all needs to get done so it will. you know when the only reason you know someone will get done is because it has to? that's where i am.

here's what i got:

-box of apricots
-box of shallots
-box of shitake mushrooms
-box of oyster mushrooms
-green lettuce
-romaine hearts
-block of cheddar cheese
-bunch of radishes (going to try them in salads - any pointers?)
-8 or 9 four-cell packs of pansies, petunias, phlox and some other pretty flowers for my balcony and another special planting project i'll share next week

grand total? $30. i love the catskills.
