I met a lady in the farmers' market today. She's a painter. She said she plants her vegetable garden for color and beauty. She explained that when they were ready she would be bringing something called French pumpkins. She said they were a deep etruscan red with leaves that have white fireworks on dark green. We both sighed. My next vegetable garden, I am going to do the same thing. Plant for exotic beauty. Plant for the flowers on the vegetables. Plant for joy. I hope you will enjoy the pictures I took of the market and the treasures I brought home. I wanted to share it with you!
