Farm Fresh and Local Produce – 3/22/08

I was happy to be able to get up early to go to the Worthington Winter Farmer’s Market this morning, as it’s been an entire month since the last one was cancelled due to blizzard. It was quite nippy this morning, with snowflakes that danced in the air but thankfully didn’t stick to the ground.

Easter is in the air, and I stopped to admire these lovely Ukranian Easter eggs that Denise of 2Silos paints in her spare time. Absolutely breathtaking and so detailed.

It also felt good to stock up on some local produce, like these red potatoes from HW Organics.

And it really is nice to see some “green stuff” (after a winter full of squash and potatoes and onions), even if it is hydroponic…

Seeing these herbs made me realize that it’s almost planting time, and got me started thinking on what I want to plant this year.

And after hearing about someone talking about it before on their blog (don’t remember who now), I knew I had to pick up some of this homemade tarragon vinegar (well, tarragon infused apple cider vinegar).

Only two more winter farmer’s markets to go, and then it’s growing season again! I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t wait!
