…my back yard here in Kansas seems to be a feeding ground for all sorts of critters.  But for some reason it are the rabbits that appear to like it the most.  Here are a couple of bunny friends who have been dining on my weeds recently:

Last weekend on my visit back to New Hampshire – I stumbled upon the neighbor’s chickens (and a handsome rooster) snacking on the back forty of the old estate.

TFM.3I made it back to my native New Hampshire this past weekend for a quick trip to deal with a few items at the old family homestead. Although the trip was mostly “business” – I was able to squeeze in a few hours of visiting some of my favorite places in good old Carroll County, New Hampshire.

First, I was pleased to stop in at the fabulous Tamworth Farmers’ Market – which is just a total delight from one end to the other. The market is held every Saturday morning in season in the charming Village of Tamworth, NH.

Among the charms of the Tamworth Market is that it is home to many truly local vendors selling their wares. You can get just about everything you need for a great meal at this market all originating from within a few miles of this lovely village. You can choose some fresh meat from local farms, cheese made from local goats, breads made with native New Hampshire wheat, and of course all the in-season produce you can gather.

TFM.1Over the next few days I am going to post about a few of the nice finds from my visit to the market – but none as cool as today’s feature: this cute young lad who was set up selling lucky rocks for a quarter.

This budding entrepreneur carefully accepted the challenge to find the particular rock that was most lucky for my sister (my companion at the market) and for me, and he was a total delight.

The Tamworth Farmers is held on the corner of Rt. 113 and Main St. every Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. the awesome place known as Tamworth Village, NH USA.
