Farmers' Markets, Farm Stands, CSAs etc. Early July
The strawberries are coming to an end. The blueberries are on a lot of stands and I can't wait for the corn, big heirloom tomatoes and Saturn peaches.
Are you shopping the farmers' markets for the July 4th Weekend?
I just went to Belmont and I have to admit we are in a little bit of a lull. The strawberries are over, the cherries are over. And the raspberries just look so lonely out there. Less greens than usual. Some of the harder stuff making an appearance like summer squash and zucchini. I picked up some Carlisle Honey to make another batch of granola . Also bought some caramel yum... I mean rum sauce.
Can't wait for some peaches!
