At the market: May 30 (FAIL)Leave a comment
June 1, 2009 by 8junebugs
I stayed up way too late on Friday night. WAY too late. I was unable to haul my arse down to the neighborhood market until after 11.
It closes at noon.
There were no strawberries. I saw no asparagus. Gracie’s Pastries was nearly out of everything.
Mostly, I was there to get some meat for the week and some eggs, and I got those. Still, though, I am struggling with the lack of green and red in my fridge.
My garden seems to be trying to distract me by putting on quite a show:
I did pick up some sage, rosemary, and thyme at the farmers market, but they haven’t had a chance to settle in — I’ll include them once they start growing on their own.
There will be additional rosemary — someone in the neighborhood trimmed back the rosemary growing in her yard and had way too much to use, but she didn’t want to throw it away, so she came down and handed it out to the late-morning stragglers. I’m going to try to sprout one shoot and see how well it grows compared to the one I bought…the rest, I’ll use on some chicken tomorrow.
