Well, the first of the year’s produce is coming in. We went to the Lakes Area Farmers’ Market for the first time last saturday (6/24) and people were out in full force scouring DL for fresh produce.

I think strawberries were the driving force. It’s all the talk about this time of year as people search high and wide for good berries.
We sold a lot of berries, but the garlic scapes certainly got the most questions from people. FYI garlic scapes are the shoots a garlic plant produces in an attempt to reproduce.
We actually set up on the “lakeside” of the market this year…we were there for a few market days last fall and we liked it, so we decided to return.
Hey, come on, live a little. Red oakleaf tastes just as good as green leaf…I think it’s a bit “nuttier” in flavor and certainly prettier. Actually oakleaf and greenleaf make a good mix.
Coming up for July 1:
Greens: collards, kale, chard
