I had never realized how long Mijo and I have been going to the Saturday Farmers Market at the Ferry Building until I saw my old photos of the farmers market.
I was browsing old photos the others and noticed that I have been taking pictures of one of my favorite flowers or scents. Dropping by Eatwell Farm's stall at the farmer's market is one of to dos whenever I'm in the area.
I took this picture in 2013. I plant lavenders myself. In fact, I have French, Spanish, English and Grosso. I learned about the Grosso type of lavender from my short chats with the friendly staff at the Eatwell Farm's stall at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.
For me, it is easy to romanticize this flower because of its scent and color. The bees love them as well.
I just feel lucky that the city is surrounded by farming communities that we have these fresh produce readily available. I also feel blessed that the this herb thrives in this region.
I love it when I unwrap a bunch of dried lavender that the fragrance just escapes and fills the house. The scent gives me a relaxing and envigorating feeling.
I heard Eatwell Farms has events.
The next on my checklist is to visit the farm and check out their lavender fields. Stay tuned.
