I’ve been a sucker for sweet corn this season, and have been eating it like it’s going out of style. I mean, seriously – how can you resist something as beautiful as this corn from Persinger Farms?
Wayward Seed Farms have been selling lots of fruit this year, provided by Eshleman Fruit Farm. I absolutely couldn’t pass by these apricots. I don’t know why, but this summer I’ve been going crazy for stone fruits.
And I’ve been quite a lot of Mexican cooking this year, and these tomatillos from Honeyrun Farms have been a wonderful addition to so many of the dishes I’ve made.
The sunflowers are still out in force, and still, every one I photograph comes out looking like a beautiful painting. If I ever get into creating art, the first thing I’m going to do is paint a sunflower. As a matter of fact, THIS would be the painting I’d do.
I love when cabbage becomes available, as there are certain dishes I make every year, and Flying J Farms cabbage was the centerpiece of the annual stuffed cabbage rolls extravaganza.
Ditto with carrots. Is it just me, or have the carrots been much smaller/shorter this year than usual?
Blueberries were still plentiful during this mid-July market.
I’m not sure why, but July pretty much got away from me. I really wish I had blogged about this as it happened, so I could give you more detail. Where did July go, anyway? Hard to believe we’re already nearing the end of August.
