At the Market June 19th
This week at the market, you'll notice that we've reached a turning point.
As we approach the Summer Solstice, when the sun stops it's gradual northerly motion, seems to stand still on June 21, and then turns to begin its southerly motion, we begin to turn as well. After months of enjoying the lush leafy greens of Spring -- the salad greens, lettuces, cilantro, dill, -- as well as the early radishes, kohlrabi, snow peas, sugar snap peas, and broccoli . . . we turn to the true fruits of summer.
Those botanical fruits (from a blossom) include the summer squashes, cucumbers, peppers, beans . . . and very soon, what you've all been waiting for, tomatoes.
For now though, enjoy the garlic scapes, since this will be the last week for them . . . see earlier post on scapes, below.
