Tote Review

The farmer’s market totes were a hit with the kids (whew!) There was nary a fiddlehead to be found. But no worries, Holden opted for carrots instead. He wore them proudly in his tote…and I say “wore” because the carrot tops literally towered over his head making him look like a walking carrot himself. For her tote, our sweet-toothed Esme chose a Pearl Bakery chocolate panini (with a little help from her father). And as hoped, and with a bounty of Spring harvest before us, lots of food-related questions were asked. And most were answered, ahem. I would show you pictures, but we forgot the camera…and the single stroller…and the umbrellas on that rainy, soggy morning…oops.

So here’s some of our first farmer’s market finds of the season instead...


Chard Before

I’m a sucker for a pretty dinner. Can you hear the pinks, reds and oranges beckoning me to make a rainbow chard-inspired quilt? quilt me!!

I love rhubarb and apple pie! Your fresh ingredients look terrific - wish I lived closer to a farmers market myself (instead of opting for the convenience of a supermarket where the freshness is questionable!)

Oh darn! I would have liked to see a photo of the carrots sticking out of his cool pack! Cheers! Tracey

Thank you Mama Blogger for the nice comments on my blog. If you try the freezer paper stencils I'm sure you will like them. I love your totes, by the way. Cute!
