You have to be an early bird if you want to buy greens on Opening Day of the Lakeshore Park Farmers Market.  And as just as we suspected, Abundant Acres from McMinn County, Tennessee, sold out early, leaving one bunch of kale from what the sign revealed:  “This is what I did have.”

Sad but undaunted, Bert lined up at the tent of VG’s Bakery, quickly grabbing three Toasty Almond Sweet Rolls before someone else did.

Stuffing one each of the delicacies into our mouths, we perused the other farmers’ wares wondering which one of us would enjoy that third roll with coffee the next morning.  But we knew the answer:  the early bird, of course.
