The Haul: Heavy Heart Edition

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted. I recently lost someone who was an inspiration to me in the garden and in the kitchen. I’ve been thinking about her constantly as I work out in the yard, wander the farmer’s market and cook in the kitchen.

Yesterday was my first foray to the outdoor farmer’s market in a couple of weeks. I forgot to take a photo before putting everything away, but here’s what I bought:

  • Tomato plants (Rutgers and Thai Cherry — sadly, my tomato seedlings have mostly died off and the remaining ones do not look healthy)
  • Asparagus
  • Strawberries
  • Vanilla yogurt
  • Broccoli
  • Porcini pasta
  • Blueberry muffin (breakfast)

I made a second breakfast out of some of the yogurt and strawberries. Dinner was a combination of some blanched asparagus, arugula pesto and the porcini pasta. The pasta came from a new vendor at the market — Pappardelle’s. They had all kinds of flavored pasta available, plus gnocchi and sauces. It looks like a company out of Los Angeles, so I’m not sure how they came to be at the Easton farmer’s market, but it was a neat addition.

I hope to post a garden update later today with photos of the VegTrug and the new tomato planter.
