Today´s story is my entry for the 6th creativy/crafting challenge of the year in the Sylvanian Families Collector Community.
The theme for this challenge was "Farm Shops and Farmers´Market.
This year,I haven´t had time to participate in any of the previous challenges but I took advantage of my days off during to the Eater holidays to take some pictures and write this story.
Two years ago I set up a Farmers´ Market as my contribution for one of these challenges: #5 "Farm life". It was an ambitious project that I really enjoyed.
This time,I only intended to take some pictures of the Cottontails getting ready to go the Farmers´market but I ended up writing a story much longer than I had in mind.
Hope you enjoy it!
It was an early Saturday morning in Sweet Berry Valley.
Aaron Cottontail was loading up his cart with the fresh vegetables, he had just harvested, to sell them in the Farmers´Market.
Charlie,his youngest son, was giving him a hand.
"Daddy, look! I´m putting the carrots in the basket,is that ok?"
"Thanks,Charlie! You´re a great help!
Aaron was particularly happy with his harvest of carrots.
"You know, Charlie? These carrots are the sweetest, crispiest and tastiest in the whole Sylvania!
"Can I eat one, dad?"
"Sure, go ahead! Carrots are good for you!"
Charlie munched on the carrot and said with his mouth still full "Mmm...it´s yummy, daddy!".When all the vegetable crates and baskets were in the cart, Aaron said:
The picnic basket was ready and Sorrel was about to sit down to have breakfast when Gromwell and Charlie came into the kitchen.
After having breakfast and tidying up the kitchen, Aaron and Sorrel went to look for their children. It was time to hitch Cinnamon to the cart and head to the Farmers´ market.
"How come?. Are you sure you put them in the cart?" Sorrel asked looking at the empty space his husband was pointed to.
"All set to go!" Aaron was going to close the cart door when Willow asked her father to wait.
As the Cottontails also needed a means of transport to deliver and take their produce to the market this cart was the best option I had, so they´ll probably become the official owners from now on.
