Saturday Farmers' Market, cruel popsicles.

Kate worked on Green Earth stuff all morning; I went to the Carbondale Farmer's Market. To my surprise it was humming today. You can hear a dozen languages there and see people from all over the world. Here's Patrick, one of my favorite local growers. We toured his farm this summer--it's really incredible.

Speaking of diversity, Kate and I later ducked into International Grocery and found these wonderful green bean popsicles. What do parents say, "No desert unless you eat your broccoli!"

"Only for grownups," the owner said, to our relief. There were two different brands.
