I love this time of year best!! All winter long I have lived without sunshine and fresh, local produce. Parden the whine, but I neeeeed the sun. I neeeed a fresh tomato. That’s all there is to it.
This week, our local farmer’s market had its opening night! Selection is limited at this point, because the growing season in Nebraska is just beginning. But lookie what I got…
Cost for everything…$7.
Value to me right now to fulfill my desparate need to eat fresh food…priceless.
Right out of our garden (for free), we’re enjoying all kinds of salads!
Joy of joys…my friends with a huge strawberry patch
invited me over for some strawberry picking fun!!!!
Oh yes…I did have fun.
I then proceeded to trade my friend some strawberries for some fresh eggs. What a deal!
And well…while he isn’t produce or eggs…this little fella does happen to be locally grown too. After our travels over the weekend and a busy day playing hard in the sun yesterday, he just laid down on the floor and fell asleep. On the floor. Now that’s one tired kid.
Great food…cute kids. Isn’t summertime the best?
Have you scored any great deals on local food lately?
What’s in season where you live?
