Container sale

 

The tantalizing view while queuing up outside the Atelier de Campagne container sale

this weekend (that basket was just enormous!).  After driving an hour south, I met my

sister and mother at 7 and we continued south to Santa Cruz county and the tiny town

of Corralitas. Blooming apple orchards and neat rows of strawberry and artichokes

teased us further along. Nearly a half hour early, a wee bit of fog settled in damply

about us as we waited nearly first in line to be greeted by Johan.  And then Tristan

arrived, laden with coffee, handing out pens, tape, and sold tags to arm ourselves

with against what seemed to be very amiable competitors…
