Farmers' Market opening day
Just got back from the Baltimore Farmers' Market.
I bought strawberries (from Virginia), asparagus, rhubarb, mushrooms, fresh ginger, a cinnamon brioche bun for my 7-year-old daughter (who tagged along while my son and husband slept in), a mango Wheely Good Smoothie (also for my daughter, even though she got stage fright and made me to the pedaling), a falafel wrap (for me), and a bunch of plants for the garden: jalapeno and bell peppers, flat-leaf parsley, tarragon and corn.
I have no idea what I spent. I don't think I want to know.
The corn plants were kind of a lark. I haven't tried corn in the garden for years. I'll be satisfied if we get one ear out of them.
I'm hoping to make strawberry-rhubarb pie and asparagus soup later today. If the heat gets to me, maybe I'll just keep eating those strawberries fresh. Not a bad backup plan.
What did everyone else buy? And who can tell me how to get the most out of those corn plants?
