Welcome to our first Farmers Market Report at the Booth!
I just came back from a jaunt to one of our local markets with the kids. I scored deals on some heirloom tomato plants ($1 each, can you believe it?) and grabbed some peppers and herbs to help round out some empty spots in our garden. Here's hoping they survive our 90-degree temps.
I was also excited to find a table with garlic scapes. I'd been toying the last few days with harvesting my own or letting them continue to grow, so this helped me realize that maybe it's not too early for me to make a stinky dish or two! (For those newbies to garlic scapes, you use them just like garlic.) Sadly, it's one of the few things I've been able to harvest so far this year, as we've had an unusually cool and wet spring, delaying just about everything.
How are things in your neighborhood?
