Down on Torrens Island there is a farmers market we like to go to on occasion. It's only there on a Sunday from 6am-1pm. This morning we thought we'd head on down there. Growers go there to sell their fruit and vegetables, and it's by the water, so there are a couple of fishmongers there too. We got a few bits and pieces, and took Cam down to where the fish were being sold, there were some pelicans and seagulls hanging around for a feed. As the fish were being cleaned, they were being tossed the scraps. Cam was transfixed by the pelicans!
Often we purchase cases of seasonal fruit for bottling, but today there was nothing I really wanted to buy in bulk. Later in the year there will be stone fruit, so I'll head down there again depending on the yield from my fruit trees. This is the first year they're bearing fruit, so I don't really know what to expect, or how much will be eaten before we get to it.
We've even had to net our strawberries more heavily this year, the blackbirds are getting so tricky!
The market is not far away from Port Adelaide, so we had an amble around the wharves. I'm always the over protective Mum and got worried every time Cameron got close to the edge. I remember my Dad taking me to the same place as a child, and worrying about me, so I guess nothing changes!
We were going to head to Ikea afterwards, but Martin got a call telling him something was busted and he would have to go to work. He would have had a 5 hour drive, fix something and come home again, so it was going to be an overnighter. By the time we got home, the site had come back online and he doesn't have to go. Oh well, there will be other opportunities to see Ikea. That is just the nature of his work.
Hope you're all having a great weekend! x o x
