Are these the dog days of summer? When do those begin? Because it is hot out. Already 80 by the time I hit the market at 9am. I had someone coming to adopt a kitty today, and it wasn't my turn to pick up the Elizabeth Telling CSA, and I had precisely $26 in cash, so I kept things very light by only going to the Clintonville Market. It was crowded! Which I suppose is good, because it means there are lots and lots of people out there who are interested in eating locally and supporting our Central Ohio farmers.
So, today I picked up my Wayward Seed farm CSA - the vegetable share included zucchini, cucumbers, cabbage, green beans, mesclun mix, and some red potatoes! The fruit share included Queen Anne cherries, blueberries! and Lodi apples (above). They were also selling plums (yum!) but they were really busy and the line was enormous, and I was in danger of becoming hot tired and cranky, so I took as pass on plums.
I stopped by Blue Jacket Creamery for some lemon quark and cheddar curds, and then bought a dozen ears of bi-color sweet corn at Yoder farmers. I bought some of the last red thumb potatoes until early fall and some Walla-Walla (above) onions from Arbor Hill Organics (I love the kid who sells those; he's very well-spoken; today he asked me if I was "wistful" about the end of the red thumbs) and lastly, a dozen eggs and some Amish donuts from 2 Silos.
What a week I've had! I don't know about all of this being busy nonsense. It's really cutting into my nap time. But, more on that later. I have missed writing for everyone, and I am happy to be back to regular writing (probably around Tuesday).
So, what did you get this week? And what are you planning to do with it?
