I just love the availability of delicious local foods during the summer months. This week at my local Farmer’s Market I found potatoes, rhubarb jelly, kohlrabi, and a delicious strawberry rhubarb pie. All of it was made or grown or by local farmers.
And shortly after my trip to the market I stopped by the community garden and picked several bags worth of sugar snap peas, snow peas, yellow wax beans, turnips, hot peppers, green bell peppers, and zucchini. My mom, who is a BIG snow peas fan, cooked up a delicious beef and snow peas meal. All but the rice was local.
In the next few days I will be heading back to the community garden to pick the first of summer’s sweet tomatoes in many varieties. My son is especially looking forward to harvesting the yellow tomatoes we planted called Lemon Boys. I will let you know how they taste smothered with balsamic vinegar and mozzarella cheese. Oh I can hardly wait!
