better than the market.

what could possibly be better than the market when it comes to fresh local produce? getting it yourself.

September might be my favorite month for fresh-from-the-garden produce. Then again, every month that produces vegetables are pretty great. But in this month, you can go from garden to soup in a matter of minutes, and that makes me happy.

The kids had fun ‘working’ in the garden at the farm last week-end. They know exactly where to get the tools and go right to it. I need to learn to plan for this instead of stopping ‘in passing to get a few things quickly before we hit the road’.

Oh, and this week… I went from garden to smoothie as well and it was delicious. Fresh picked swiss chard in my smoothies, and my fancy glass I’ve decided to claim as a smoothie glass. It’s a wedding present and this week as we celebrated our eight anniversary it occured to me that these beautiful gifts are way better used than in the cupboard! Wouldn’t you agree?
