Farmer’s Market Haul

I love this time of year…

2 quarts strawberries
2 pints blueberries
1 bunch basil
1 bunch chives
1 head red salad bowl lettuce
5 Jersey tomatoes
5 of the cutest little zucchini
5 each red bliss and Yukon gold potatoes
5 ears corn
1 dozen eggs
2 pints of ice cream (!!!): chocolate mint & chocolate raspberry truffle
2 pounds of wheatberries

Things I didn’t buy and kinda regret:
2 lbs of farmer-ground corn meal (next time)
mushrooms
flowers, flowers, flowers
nitrate- and nitrite-free hot dogs ($14! for hot dogs!)

Things I’m not at all sorry to have passed up cuz they just weren’t up to snuff:
sugar snap peas
cherries
99% of the overpriced, sad-looking stuff at the organic booth

Things I can’t wait to see:
eggplant
sun gold tomatoes
cucumbers
melon
