The hot days of summer are sure upon us! It sure makes you appreciate the many hours that our farmers spend out in their fields tending to the crops that get freshly harvested for the market. I know I appreciate their work with each bite that I take out of a fresh tomato, a crisp cucumber, savoring that wonderful sauteed zucchini and smiling from ear to ear as I bite down on that delicious corn! Pardon my pun but I am still grinning as I enjoy the juicy and sweet cantaloupe that I purchased on Tuesday. My thanks to the farmers who have weathered the heat wave so that I can enjoy their bounty in my cool home. :)
The market this Saturday promises even more goodies for all of us to enjoy! The heirloom tomatoes and peppers are starting to show up and so are those juicy watermelons! And, our farmers are creating some of the most spectacular jams, jellies and butters too! You'll find good old grape jelly alongside peach jam, blackberry jam, raspberry jam, mixed berry jam and even a spicy tomato jam! And, who can resist apple butter..not me.
But, we'll have so much more this Saturday, including...
And so much more!
