Summertime in Annapolis means food fresh from the farm

If you want to avoid the crowds, try farm shopping Tuesday mornings at the Riva Road Farmers Market, open from 7:00 a.m. to noon. I arrived around 7:30 a.m. and there were plenty of delicious items and very few customers. Yes, fewer farmers come to set up booths when compared to a Saturday morning, butContinue reading “Summertime in Annapolis means food fresh from the farm”

Annapolis signs of springtime

Looking  at the tree just outside my window, I see a Robin Red Breast preening herself as she rearranges herself on her nest. It;s spring.
