Second round

What a wonderful weekend. I got to spend some great time with friends, enjoyed the weather and also got some much-needed down time.

On Saturday I picked up my second share of the season, and here's my loot:

Asparagus and potatoes

Bibb lettuce


Popcorn, bread and maple syrup

I've almost finished off the asparagus (I know my family is shocked reading that), and I am glad to have my lettuce supply replenished. I wasn't really expecting potatoes, but that gives me some easy meals. 

I got a quart of strawberries from my pick-up, so I definitely didn't need more, but that didn't stop me from going strawberry picking with friends on Saturday afternoon. It was a lot of fun, and I just couldn't resist the beautiful strawberries just asking to be picked so I came home with two pounds.

 I don't have pictures, but we capped the day off with a trip to a local arts and crafts festival. It was one of those days, as most are, that I was so grateful to live where I do. You just can't beat the scenery in this part of the country.

I did a fair amount of cooking on Sunday after meeting an old friend for lunch, so my next post will have some recipes. And if you need some strawberries, please drop by!


  1. Way to go, Farmer Conner! You should have a whole new appreciation for references to "the harvest." bt
