Farmer's Market

Gainesville has a farmer's market every Wednesday in the downtown plaza from around 4 to 7. There's lots of fresh, organic, local produce; live music; jewelry; and hacky sack-playing. I often intend to go after work, but rarely make it for several reasons, most of which have to do with a word that starts with the letters "N-A-P."

Kim and I carpooled to work yesterday, and decided to stop by the market on our way home. I bought some delicious-smelling basil and beautiful kale for a dollar! The latter is in the bottom of this photo.

I'm going to make green lasagna with both the kale and the basil.

Oh my god. My grandpa, an old Irish guy from NYC, said the most important word to spell was NAP. I think that was the first word I learned to spell...which is pretty historic for an English major! That seemed to run in our family! But I'm convinced the heat and humidity had somthing to do with it.
