Farmer’s Market

O joy, O happy day!

We have a new farmer’s market, and I finally got to visit it this morning.
Compared with larger communities, I’m sure it’s small; for my neck of the woods, it’s fabulous.

There were only a few stands with veggies. Other offerings included fresh flowers, fresh baked goods, fresh fish and seafood, fresh *pet* food, and artisan cheeses.

I bought a log of Westfield Farm classic blue chevre.

My favorite vendor by far was Hmong Farms.

and beautiful baby green pea tendrils for me!

Closer to home, it begins to look more like summer in the deck-garden…

tomatoes on the deck

and the beans and ridge gourd are starting to climb.

This is one of my favorite parts of the garden — watching the little climbing vines reach out and take hold!


And now it’s time to find something to do with the pea tendrils 🙂

    Those greens look crisp and lush! The pea tendrils are adorable, I love their curls and ringlets.
    So what did you make with these? A big tasty salad? Or atop a light pasta?

    Linda, I saw your comment on Indira’s about making adais w/o rice. Absolutely! Infact, I made it with y’day w/ a mixture of channa, urad, masoor and moong dals and it turned out really good. Adai is such a forgiving recipe that I don’t even bother w/ the proportions anymore. I just thrown in the dals together and soak them in water before going to work. I grind them in the blender after I come back in the evening and the batter is good to go.
