plenty of them at the u-distric farmer's market today,
I was out of town last week so didn't get a chance to go, has anyone seen zuccinni blossoms yet??
I found them when I was already out of cash having splurged on black currants, cherries, apricots, baby spinach, sorell and King Bolets. I'm not allowed to go to the u-district market alone or I'll come home with more food than 20 people could eat - this was restrained for me
We also picked up kebab meat from thundering hooves, cherry tomatoes & fresh green pepper: Bill has promised to pull out the grill this weekend!

Had to buy them since I've never seen them before, but love garbanzos.
Now, what do I do with them?

I started off with a slice of cherry strudel to fuel my foraging--it was still slightly warm--ummm.
I bought tomatoes, haricot vert, new red potatoes, red and gold beets with lots of nice greens for steaming, some really nice looking broccoli with slender stems and deep green leaves attached, a round of aged goat cheese, basil, and some blueberries.
I also saw saw fresh chick peas--they are on leafy stalks with small pods. Let us know how they turn out, Eden.

The always lovely 'wild & spicy' lettuce, herb & flower mix (I adore this just plain with a simple vinaigrette) This one contains nasturium flowers and leaves, dill, mizuna, arugula, etc etc.
A beautiful bunch of rainbow chard
A dozen eggs
3 kinds of tomatoes: beefsteaks, and 2 russian heirloom varieties
A big bunch of japanese sweet scallions
