Just the facts on my rushed morning

I was in a crazy hurry Saturday morning, but somehow I managed to pick up an excellent assortment of produce.

Variety is the spice:
1 bunch kale
1 bunch collard greens
1 lb. shell peas
1 lb. pattypan squash
1 bunch spring onions
1 bunch carrots
2 lbs. zucchini
2 ears bicolor corn
1/2 lb. cherries
2 lbs. peaches
1/2 lb. apricots
1/2 lb. Shiro plums
2 lbs. lady apples
2 pints Tristar strawberries
Total spent: $67

Why so few cherries? According to one of the vendors, the cherry crop has been truncated due to a hailstorm and bad weather over the week - so no more! Despite this heartbreaking news, I was able to console myself somewhat with delicious peaches, apricots, plums, and strawberries.

Picked blueberries & a few handfuls of black raspberries with the grandkis this a.m. Poured half & half on the black raspberries & ate them all by myself---yum! Thanks for the warm welcome back :)

Oh, yum, I love black rasperries - they don't show up much in the greenmarket but I snap them up when I can. I am going to have to be decadent and have berries and cream one of these mornings - that sounds too good!! Thanks for stopping by!
