Yes, I liked Star Trek: The Next Generation (the TV show that is). No, I'm not writing this like Jean-Luc Picard.
Today's bounty was tremendous:
Milk Thistle just released their slow-process yogurt - we have a pint
Maxwell Farm's strawberries are too tiny and delicious not to buy, by the quart
Farmer Ray insisted I take a bag of sugar snap peas
And the fishing family had the greatest surprise - LOBSTERS that are fiery mad. We took 2 of them along with these tiny, sardine-like fish called SPEARLING (small fish = low, low mercury and better for the ecosystem).
May passed. Early June passed. And not until Friday - June 11th, did we have a nasty HOT day. Just plain hot and sticky. Which then made me turn around and think about our great produce coming in from Jersey farmlands and the Hudson Valley.
I verified this at the food co-op last night. Finally, we're way beyond kohlrabi, turnips, & hothouse lettuces.
So I promise you the vast LOCALVORE-NATION that 2009 will be a bloggy-hot summer.
