Saturday scenes and scenery: harvest abundance

Last month thousands of farmers and gardeners flocked to the the National Heirloom Exposition in an old county building in Santa Rosa, CA.

These few photos don't begin to capture the scale of the event, but I thought they'd be fun.

Some exhibits seemed human scale.

I liked the colors of these very hot habaneros.

That looks just scrumptious. My farmers market shut down for the season two weeks ago and already I am lamenting some of the supermarket produce.

When the carrots and green beans can be bent without breaking, they are long past their sell-by date.
