Midweek Munchies: What RIFT
is contributing for the week
Thursday Farmer's Market!
Very much smaller than the downtown Saturday Market, five stands
is all (I think). But so very much better because there were
just a few other customers there! Awesome since I hate the crowds.
I got 2 normal sized Cucumbers for 1.50$ each. I've decided
that store bought cucumbers aren't even worth the effort; I'm going
to stick with local organic cucs from now on.
I got 5 small Broccoli thingees. Significant Other
got 4 tiny zucchini
and a variety of potatoes. All these were 2.50$/pound and
with the cucs, the bill came to 15$.
And then SO bought me a couple of basil plants for the devastated
garden. I will plant them this weekend, maybe. But I will also
have to buy a watering can... I think the rain is fixing to stop
for the summer, and any new plants will probably just wilt without
a water source.
If they grow, I think I'll buy a few more and also some other
spices. I saw rosemary and garlic chives. I don't really use
spices in cooking, so I'll have to broaden my kitchen horizons!
