Oh time, she flies! It’s been weeks since we’ve peeked in on my Market, as the ever-changing produce marches onward towards those lazy days of summer’s bounty. When FarMar 2011 opened in March, it was all leafy greens and hardy radishes. Since then we’ve seen the arrival of snow and snap peas, which are actually on their way out again. Asparagus already crested as well. We’ve been eating plenty of these every week!
This year I’m really excited about the “wild crafted” harvest – that means foods grown and gathered from wilderness. Fiddleheads, ramps, sea beans, sorrel, mushrooms, and more. And oh! The nettles, of course!
Strawberries are beginning to show up, and this Saturday I saw cherries. It’s such an exciting time in the season! The floodgates are about to open . . .
Oh yea, it’s true!
What seasonal produce have you been enjoying lately? What are you looking forward to?
Happy Summer Solstice!
