While planting some seeds the other day, (lettuce and strawberry, if you are interested!!!) and thinking about what other produce and herbs I would like to plant soonish as this weather finally gives itself over to spring, I remembered that farmer's markets will soon be open for business.
I love farmer's markets. I started frequenting the one in DeKalb while Evan was in law school and I stumbled upon not only fantastic prices for fresh produce, but some new produce that either I'd never seen or hadn't thought to purchase before. I've also found produce in colors I didn't know they came in, and that is always a fun find! (For example, did you know that cauliflower can be yellow and purple?) I also really like the idea of supporting local farmers. They are so friendly and love answering questions about their crops.
So, as I start reaping the benefits of my own garden soon and that of other people's, I want to know...
What is your favorite fresh produce? And how do you cook it/eat it? I'm on the hunt for new ways of cooking veggies and I'd love some that come from your houses!!!!
