We meant to go to an art fair in downtown St. Pete but ended up at the Saturday morning market.
First we stopped at the booth named St. Pete Rocks. I bought Mookalite, a form of jasper from Australia that is meant to impart deep calm when faced with new experiences, points out all possibilities and assists with choosing the best one. Nancy chose Rhyolite, which is purported to ignite the potential and creativity of the soul, potentiates change and assists in fulfilling quests. Also Bloodstone a grounding and protective stone, known for its properties to revitalize the mind and dispel confusion, and a sharks tooth just for fun.
We only meant to buy a few tomatoes but kids in a candy shop that we are, couldn’t resist organic red tipped lettuce, watermelon radishes and baby carrots from Life Farms in Clearwater, organic heirloom tomatoes from Little Pond Farm in Bushnell, more organic tomatoes, cucumbers, baby bok choy, green beans, beets and dandelion greens from Worden Farms in Punta Gorda.
We rushed home with our colorful bounty intent on a juicy tomato sandwich and a big salad with our dinner.
It’s not Jersey fresh, but we are grateful for a sunny February day abounding with life from the Earth.
