Maiden Voyage Since Repairs

Skidway Island State Park

We just returned from the first campout with my camper since major water damage repairs forced her out of commission for about seven months. Her first venture out was quite a success at Skidway State Park near Savannah, Georgia.

Saturday morning we hit the Forsyth Farmers Market, by far one of the best I have ever been to. TONS of fresh organic produce, gorgeous flower, honey, fresh breads, dips and sauces, coffees and more.

Upon arrival one of the first things we got to do was plant a bean plant with my daughter's name - they said that next time we came back and it had sprouted we could take it home. What a cute idea! I hope ours goes to a great home.

One of the highlights of the market was meeting Rejanne from Moonthyme Garden and Nursery. I noticed she had amaranth - a type of grain. She patiently explained about the growing cycle and how to dry and clean it so I went ahead and bought some along with some gorgeous lime basil. If you are in the Savannah area, do check out her fresh herbs and veggies - to get in contact with her, her email is

I also spent some time speaking with Walker Farms - a local (to that area) organic farm. What caught my eye were the gorgeous beans and carrots. I love anything unique and these certainly were! They also had fresh cut flower and tons of other super fresh produce.

Next I came across Farm a la Carte - what I loved was her food truck/farm stand. It was lined with wooden crates filled with fruits and veggies and she was also selling cheese, meats and eggs, as well as what looked like sauces.

I could definitely see me in a similar set up. Hmm.....I shall add this to my "Vision Board". I wish I could have spoken with her but every time I walked by there was a line. It must be good!

We returned to Skidway Island State Park and smashed up some guacamole from veggies we had on hand, and then cooked up corn, peppers, onions and beans on the fire.

A good time was had by all. If you are in the Savannah area be sure to check out the Forsyth Farmers Market located on the south end of Forsyth Park.
