Scenes from the Copley Farmer's Market

Yesterday, I picked up peaches, tomatoes, corn, basil, and bread, and contemplated berries, plums, eggplant, and greens before I remembered that the market returns on Friday, so there's no need to hoard. The first corn of the season was wonderful for dinner. Tomorrow's dinner: pasta with fresh pesto.

Here are some photo's of summer abundance, although I have to say that the tomatoes look better than they taste. They will improve dramatically in a few weeks when the greenhouse tomatoes give way to the field varieties.

Garden bouquets

Apples, early in their season

Too bad I'm having a gardening moratorium these days....

Blackberries, gooseberries, blueberries, and raspberries

Why settle for plain old berries when you can have berry pie?

When I see beans, I crave a good salade Ni├žoise

Tiny, beautiful plums... I hope they're still around on Friday.
