Cabbage, and broccoli, and turnips, oh my!

Dear Weather,

I biked in the rain both ways yesterday.  Tuesday I bussed because of the rain.  Today it was not supposed to be raining.  Yet I stepped outside with my bike this morning, only to experience drops of water falling from the sky.  I object.  This was not part of the deal.


A Disgruntled Bike Commuter

Now that I got that off my chest, on to local goodness.  Our regular weekly farmer’s markets are on hiatus until spring, except for a market at my husband’s place of employ, which continues to offer fabulous produce.  Here is their list for this week: Tomatoes, Bell peppers, Cauliflower, Butternut squash, Cabbage, Brussels sprouts, Acorn squash, Pie pumpkins, Sweet potatoes, Potatoes, Broccoli, Scallion, Swiss Chard, Lettuce, Spinach, Arugula, Turnips (a white, Japanese turnip that is mild and sweet with beautiful greens) and Radishes.

I’m not really sure about tomatoes at this time of year, but everything else sounds great.  We already have bell peppers, broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower in the fridge from last week’s market.  Today’s list includes brussels sprouts, scallions, arugula, and sweet potatoes — yum!
