Today is just one of those beautiful summer days. It’s warm but not humid, I have the windows open instead of the AC on, it’s sunny, and a great day for a walk. Therefore, I stopped at the Farmer’s Market this morning. I hadn’t been in a few weeks, as I haven’t had much time to cook. I was shocked by how much more they had this week than a month ago! For weeks it was just lettuce and bread, with an occasional few early spring fruits and vegetables, but this was another story!
And here’s one of what I bought:
Kale, carrots, green beans, cucumber, beets, scallions and mesculin mix. I have to tell you, there is NOTHING like fresh picked carrots. The orange things I use for cooking and put on my salads all winter are a pale imitation of the goodness of fresh picked carrots.
