I woke up early for a Saturday, in hopes of scoring big at my local Cherry Street Farmer's Market. My CSA membership is with Emily & Mike of Three Springs Farm .....the best sustainable, organic farm in this area. Lesson learned today - the early bird really does get the worm. The Cherry Street Market opens at 7 am, but being a bit delinquent in arriving at 8 am, Emily and Mike had already sold out of their succulent young spinach, arugula and sweet turnips. However, it wasn't a complete disappointment since I picked up a couple of bunches of radishes, mizuna, long stemmed garlic, green onions and pea shoots.
Happily, my other vendor stops brought a beautiful bounty of spinach, asparagus, romaine and assorted prepared foods; salsa, hummus, tapenade and fresh corn relish, for the family.
Most of my tight chums already know about Bunny Berry, but in case you've missed the hoopla surrounding this raw food diva, please go check a righteous sister out! My raw food talent scout radar is off the charts for this South Carolina artsy babe. Big props to my dear friend, Angela of One Raw Mom for giving me the hook up to Beth Berry's benevolently behavin' 100 day raw challenge blog! Go send her some love, won't you?
Another ADD subject change....I project that tomorrow will be a magnificent day....Gordon & I are driving up to my father's organic garden, near Grand Lake. Dad says the blackberries and boysenberries are crescendoing right now. Among other things, I am taking my digital camera. Can't wait...hope to have amazing pics for you tomorrow.......
