Is it spring yet?

We had a cloudy, cool day. There's a prediction for flurries in the morning and a hard frost tomorrow night. Fortunately, it's been such a wet spring that no one has been able to get anything into the ground, so the freeze will hopefully not have much effect on gardeners or farmers.

In spite of the gloomy weather, I went to a Farmers Market this morning, the St. Louis Community Farmers' Market. It's a monthly winter market near Tower Grove Park. I didn't know about this one until Denise posted on the Kimker Hill Farm blog that she would be selling her flour there.

Among other things, I bought a cheese-herb focaccia from 4 Seasons Bakery, red lettuce from ShowMe Fresh Farm (a hydroponic farm near Cape Girardeau), and baba ghanoush sold as a fundraiser by the church hosting the market. Putting that all together, I had a fast food lunch -- Farmers Market style.
