Farm(er’s Market) to Table…

One of the highlights of my week out here at the cottage in the summer, is the Wednesday morning Farmer’s Market in Kenora.  From early summer when all you can find are lettuce and radishes, blueberries if you’re lucky (but you don’t have to fight the hoards) to the peak in mid-Aug, when you have your choice of local fruits and all the veggies you can lug home, to late fall when the crowds are again diminished and it’s time for bouquets of mums and dahlias, besides the gourds and root vegetables.  But my favorite trips are during the weeks of dill and cucs.  For pickling.  Not a small job to do, but oh, so satisfactory when the jars are filled and lined up waiting for the seals to audibly set!  So I decided to mark this passion for pickles with a layout of the process.


I used a grid pattern for the overall design and used a lot of the Simple Stories Bloom and Grow line, the woodgrain, polka dot and striped papers, the chipboard flowers, as well as the Photoplay Fresh Picked line for the sticker images.  Occasionally I like the format of Project Life layouts, so I feel like I scratched that itch with this page.


I got a little “punny” with the title, using some wood veneer letters from my stash.  Here are some detail shots along with the progression of cucumber photos from Farmer’s Market basket to jar prep, to finished dills to the burger plate!  Mmmmakes me hungry for one right now!





Who says memory-keeping is just about people and places??  I firmly believe in loving a thing/process to a point where it deserves a place in the annals of family history!  Its a way of making note of, and appreciating something; by telling your tribe, this happened, I loved it and I don’t want to forget it!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

  • Love this Norine … love the blocking and the papers and embellies are just perfect.  I wouldn’t mind trying one of these pickles.  😉

  • What a fun layout to document something !!  Love all the colours you used they are just perfect for the photos, I like how the grid paper almost makes it look like stitching from afar.
