Saturday summer mornings in Ohio are a great memory for me. Our family went to the local farmer’s market. There we could purchase freshly picked produce, bread, cheese and meat.
The farmer’s market has a fair-like atmosphere. One summer the director of the farmer’s market asked our son to play his keyboard at the market. He propped up his keyboard and played throughout the morning. He earned $80 in tips toward his college tuition!
Our senses came alive with the aromatic herbs. When you go to a farmer’s market, some vendors cook food right in front of you, or offer you a generous sample in hopes that you will buy a supply to take home with you. We loved the Amish booths that carried everything from organic milk and eggs to ripe red tomatoes and cabbages to homemade zucchini bread. Delicious! Arms full of treasures, we would go home and enjoy healthy meals the next week.
Some of you are old enough to remember–or your parents have told you about–the Victory Gardens that people planted during WWII. These gardens provided their owners with healthy fresh food options and stretched the family dollar. Gardening provides an outlet for stress, a creative outlet, a connection with the earth, a chance to make a difference, a terrific way to save LOTS of money, and an income-producing potential that can bring in many extra dollars a month. Grow what you can eat, and sell the extra! You can also create delicious and unique concoctions that you can bottle or preserve and sell at a local farmer’s market.
