where is everybody?

Today's farmer's market run was rather unsuccessful. Hanna (downgraded from hurricane to tropical storm) kept most of the farmers away. I don't blame them, it looks pretty menacing out there.

We wanted to get eggs from Flying Pig Farm. They had none, in fact, nobody had them. The mushroom guy wasn't there. Our favorite meat suppliers weren't either. We grabbed what we could -- some squash, radishes, a couple heirloom tomatoes, micro-greens, and bread. Looks like we'll have to rely on the supermarket a little more heavily this week.

The looming storm also kept us from going to a friend's barbecue, her house a little over an hour north. It's really coming down now. I think we made the right choice.
