SAVOR THE FLAVORS OF SUMMER
Fresh from the field produce is really starting to kick in after a slow start. The heat, the rain and now sunny dry days all contribute to plants increasing their growth spurts. In some cases (think lettuces) they are getting ahead of themselves.
Lots available including cucumbers, cabbage, variety of carrots, dandelion greens, lettuces, variety of onions, nasturtium flowers and shoots, kale, summer squash, beets, tomatoes, raspberries, etc.
We have been promised peaches for August 1 and there's a chance we will have local corn this week, but don't hold your breath!
Here's what's happening other than normal this week at market.
Anna Gill's column is titled Beeting the Odd with some beautiful pictures (we enjoy them as much as her writing and her recipes!). She features a truly quick and simple pickling recipe and refers to other beet recipes on our website.
See you at the market Saturday, outdoors at Center School parking lot.
