I've been doing Master Gardener clinic, on a regular basis, out at the West Seattle Farmer's Market (Sunday's 10-2, at the Junction). This weekend we got the yummyiest stuff:
--organic farmmade goat cheese, rolled in basil
--fresh peaches, so juicy it's like eating liquid sunshine
--fresh salad mix, with mixed greens, and edible flowers
--blackberries, so big you eat them one at a time
--basil--there's more pesto to be made!
--crostini with rosemary--yummy, cripsy bread.

(I also got bok choy and beets, but not everyone classifies them as yummy as I do!)

I love the Farmer's Market. I just ate my lunchtime salad, and now get to consume the peach.

I need to find a place locally that I can pick them (or buy them cheaper than the Farmer's Market!). They'd make some heavenly jam.

Lopez Island! *heh*

I suppose you want something a little more local than that, though.

Actually Lopez sounds heavenly, but it's probably a little far for me to run up on Sunday morning for berries...

Mmmmm, beets! :)

Do you like beet salad? I have a recipe for beet salad that is wonderful...

Finnish Beet Salad - Punajuurisalaatti.

Beet Salad!
That sounds really interesting....

What do you do for the "beet juice" for the dressing?
I don't have a juicer--I suppose I could mash a cooked beet and strain it or something...
