 Yesterday we were thankful that the rainfall warning which was still in effect Saturday night, (it poured from mid afternoon on), blew itself dry by early morning. It started out grey and a bit damp here, but as we drove to White Rock, there was a line of blue sky out to the west. About half way through the market, the sun came out, and it was a beautiful day. And oh my, did we ever need it. What a lovely way to end the market season.
Here's Larry getting the jam set out

 And our first customer patiently waiting, her chosen bouquet in hands.  We don't usually serve customers until we are fully set up.  In fact, when I remember, I put a couple of bungee cords across the front of the tent.  We found that if you start serving people before you are ready, it could be an hour into the market before you have time to get it all done. 

Some of the produce.  There isn't a lot of variety left at this time of the year, well at least with us

See the two yellow straight neck squash in front of the flowers?  If you look closely you can see they are connected together.  And I see I put in a sunflower that was a bit ratty looking.  Oops. That's what happens when you are working in the garage around midnight, putting the bouquets together.  I was really happy though that we sold all 22 bouquets!

We had lots of these Eight Ball zucchini this year.  They are just like a regular zucchini, but round.

I was giving some to another vendor one Sunday, in return for what she gives us that is leftover from her stall.
This vendor, who prefers to remain nameless, thought of another use for them.  We have renamed them Dolly zucchinis!
