The Tastes of Summer

We went to the Farmers Market on Saturday morning, just another reason I am enjoying our first weekend home from vacation.

The produce at the market had changed considerably in the weeks since we last visited. I was hoping for Fourth of July sweet corn and berries. Only one or two booths had corn and I don't think I saw any berries. Next weekend?

What we did find was an abundance of squash, tomatoes, new potatoes, peas, beans, onions and lettuce. Everything looked beautiful. We've had a lot of rain and cooler temperatures (until last week) and the veggies have flourished.

We brought home our largest "crop" of the year, new potatoes, cherries, zucchini, cue ball squash, baby eggplant, baby beets, snow peas, peas in the shell and green beans. I am always a little overwhelmed when I get everything home. Making sure we store it properly. What to cook when? What new recipes to try? Now that I've figured it all out my concern has turned to anticipation. I can't wait to try some new recipes.
