Someday it will be spring here

Winter seems to have a death grip on Spring here. One day it’s 75 degrees, the next it’s 45. Yet, those rare warm and sunny days are an indication of a Spring to come. Hopefully, that will happen soon. And that will mean that farmers’ markets. I can hardly wait. Meanwhile, here is a list of resources to find the market closest to you:

It seems that there are some markets already open, but they’re mostly open during the weekdays and during business hours. Which means I can’t go. Grrr. But not like there’s a whole lot going on there now. And I’m hoping that the local farms actually have more than what the markets do. I think a trip to the farm is in order. I heard asparagus is available. Yay!

Farms and Farmers’ markets (update)

I haven’t posted any new recipes in a while, but I haven’t cooked anything new recently.  That’s also because I haven’t cooked in the last few weeks at all.  I know, it’s terrible.  But I’m really excited about being able to go to farms and pick my own tomatoes, peppers, apples, etc.  Hopefully, that will inspire me to create new dishes.

Witte’s Vegetable Farm is a great place for fresh vegetables.  I picked up some great summer squash, zucchini, garlic, and carrots.  Delicious!

Barthel Fruit Farm has absolutely the best apples around.  I love going to pick my own.  They also have chickens and a goat and the kids absolutely love it (well, the kids I see out there).
