A Very Good Day!

Boy oh boy, today was a good day. We started out by going to the Portland Farmers Market with our friends N&P. We got lots of fresh veggies and some tasty fresh-caught salmon.

Afterwards, Codi and I went to the Mountainside Lavender Farm on Chehalem Mountain in the Scholls, Oregon area.

After getting two huge bunches of fresh lavender, we went to a berry farm and picked about 5 pounds of fresh raspberries, Siskiyou blackberries (the best in the world! like blackberry fused with pinot noir grapes!), and some very interesting Obsidian blackberries. Nothing beats the taste of fresh, hot berries in the summer! Wowowow!

Later on, we went to Zeppo for caprese and bruschetta, then back home where I grilled the fresh salmon and steamed some fresh zucchini in an olive oil, herb and sparkling wine sauce.
