What a busy day at the Arts Center of Cannon County on Saturday, a great selection of local artist showcasing their skills and talents during the first day of the festival. And of course the Cannon County Farmers Market Producers had a great selection as well. The season's first "mess" of turnip greens made their appearance at the Market. Couldn't resist taking a "good helping" down to my parents in Lynchburg. Mom had the greens washed and in the skillet just a few minutes after I walked in the door.
