This afternoon I walked to the mid-week Farmer's Market. Picked up spinach, garlic, potatoes, broccoli, peppers. And guess what was on my red potatoes and garlic? Dirt! Wonderful, real-world, local grower, soil clinging, picked-today wonders. High summer has arrived when the fresh garlic arrives at the market. Picked two weeks ago and drying since then, I'll put it to use tonight.
