Markets have begun all over the city. City Hall Mondays and Wednesdays, Copley Tuesdays and Fridays, Brookline Thursdays, Cambridgeport and JP Saturdays… It’s time to switch your shopping away from the supermarkets and feed yourself fresh, local, nourishing fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, cheeses, herbs, honey….
We are harvesting lettuce, chard, beets, arugula, mesclun, turnips, onions, strawberries, snap peas, and more. Of course, we’ll have plants at the markets for the coming month too! I’ve been enjoying freshly snipped herbs in all my salads, as well as edible flowers. Stock up on herbs and Gem Marigolds to add interest to your meals:) And even I grow a pot of Terenzo and Lizzano cherry tomatoes on my terrace for instant access.
Feed yourself conscientiously!
Tonight Glenn came inside and said, “Too bad we don’t have any Tree Frogs!” Yes, he was musing at the almost deafening ruckus outside from our amphibian friends. The abundance of healthy frogs and toads are some of the finest indicators of a healthy habitat 🙂
The CSA starts this Saturday and it looks like it might stop raining by then! Boy is it wet out there.
