We usually go to the farmers' market on Saturdays, and it is such a lovely experience I decided to start a thread on farmers' markets.
Who goes to them?
Who sells produce at them?
What do you sell?
What do you buy?
*A bunch of lovely yellow summer squash
*Some vidalia onions
*Some kind of fresh beans, I can't remember what they are called, they look like pinto beans but lighter and bigger. Now we are not sure what to do with freshly shelled beans...
*I got a humongo bag of sweet corn for only one buck! They said it was "the dregs" but when you get to the market late, you take what you can get
When we got home, I took my "dregs" sweet corn outside to shuck it. Most of it turned out to be fine! Short ears, and some of it was buggy, but I got a whole lot of corn for a buck. There were only three ears that I decided not to bother with, leaving about 15 that were perfectly fine (but short) or had some bugginess to be cut off.Slim the Cat
ate some kernels of corn that escaped, along with some bugs. Cats eat corn!
Kirk shelled beans outside with me while I was shucking. It was nice.
Farmers' market! Yay!
