Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market

And so the garden continues to churn out baby tomatoes, cucumbers abounding, no critters have yet eaten the melons, in a few weeks we'll have red peppers. We're a bit worried about the big tomatoes, which may have been living a bit too close to the bbq lately and just don't seem to be ripening, but fingers crossed. All goes well. And tonight we went to Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market which is very close to our house, and we were thrilled to find their bounty a-plenty still at six o'clock when we were able to get down there. Brilliant! We got swiss chard, pattypan squash, yellow zucchini, baby eggplant, basil, beets (red and yellow), and corn. How fun is eating local in August? Tonight we had pizza and it was absolutely delicious.

In related news, I'm now getting a bit of Laurie Colwin's Home Cooking on the side.
