Eating Locally

Dinner tonight was mostly vegetables that grew quite close to Ann Arbor.
Lettuce and tomatoes: local. Sardines and lemon... not.
These were some of the most wonderful fingerling potatoes I have ever seen.
They had virtually no eyes or dark spots at all, and were very uniform
in size. The taste and texture were perfect.
Potatoes, tomatoes, lettuce, and parsley were from local farmers, sold by Argus Farm Stop. The chives grew in a pot in our own garden. Butter for the potatoes -- I have no idea! Unfortunately, the growing season for many good things is coming to an end, and extraordinary simple meals like this will be only a dream.

We shop the farmers' markets from May to November!

That's the best way to shop, at a farmers market if you can do it. Those potatoes sure look good. I don't currently have any herbs growing but I want to rectify that this next year when it's time to plant again.
