Tomorrow I volunteer at the Farmers' Market kiosk. This makes my third time this season. I enjoy it immensely, although last week I got so wrapped up in volunteer duties (and socializing) that I missed my window for eggs. Two vendors, and they were both out by the time I got there. I did get tomatoes, however. A guy who has some sort of little greenhouse tunnels had some ripe red tomatoes. So I had to send the hubby in search of some farm fresh bacon--many thanks to Jim and Marilyn at Heritage Hill Homestead for coming through for us--so that we could eat our first BLTs of the season.
Shepherd's Valley CSA is also making weekly deliveries now. As a bonus this week, Farmer John was able to provide us with organic strawberries from Cherryvale, Kansas. I only wish I had been in a place to order more and put some of them away. They were excellent on-the-spot eating. I didn't even get to share in the first quart. The kids had it devoured before I got into the house.
More Strawberries! I didn't think to take a picture until I was almost done cleaning them.
Perfect over a bowl of old-fashioned, home-made ice cream.
