So it is late October and my container garden is still producing tomatoes and peppers. This is my latest harvest (top photo). There are still a few blooms and growing fruit on the vines (bottom photo), so if the frost holds off I may have one more harvest yet.



I am back from a long weekend in Chicago and will be posting about my finds over the coming days.

greenAny fan of Lost Cowboy knows how much I love a good farmers market – make it an urban farmers market and I am all over it. Which is why when I find myself in Chicago on a Saturday morning – like this past weekend – you can find me poking through the stands at Green City Market in Lincoln Park.

About Chicago’s Green City Market: “Chicago’s largest and first year-round sustainable farmers market, Green City Market provides a marketplace for purchasing sustainably grown food and connecting farmers and local producers directly to chefs and the greater Chicago community. Green City Market compliments the market with robust educational programs through our Edible Gardens, Club Sprouts, and Chef Demos.”

Green City Market also holds a Saturday market in the West Loop neighborhood.

The Lincoln Park market runs one more Saturday outside – Saturday, October 29 – before moving to its indoor winter location at Lincoln’s Park’s Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.

Green City Market runs Saturdays May through October 7:00 a.m. – 1 p.m. – 1817 N. Clark, South end of Lincoln Park in the great city of Chicago, IL 60614.

hal1The only thing really scary about the DoohicKey SkullKey I found from the fine folks at The Brokedown Palace is that it may not open your lock – but all the other stuff it can do makes it a worthy addition to your key ring.

About the DoohicKey SkullKey:

“Hidden within the size and shape of a regular house key, the lightweight DoohicKey SkullKey from Nite Ize has the functionality of a basic multi-tool with none of the bulk. Bottle opener, screwdriver, scoring point – it does everything but actually open a door.”

The DoohicKey SkullKey is available from Brokedown Palace.
