First Strawberries at Market
Yesterday at The Bennington Farmers' Market, we had strawberries. They were not just any strawberries: they were our own, organic, lusciously ripe, early berries! And they did not last long because almost every customer to visit our booth treated themself to the taste of June. I kept telling people that they taste as good as they look, because they do. Maybe better. I must say that as I have been picking I have tasted a few before they get to my pint container, and the taste is unreal: they are so rich in flavor. It was wonderful to add some red color to our very green display!
Yesterday, we also uncovered our beautiful brassica (broccoli, cabbage, kale, kohlrabi) field so the plants could get some fresh air. Also, they are big enough for the flea beetles to no longer be a threat, which means they are getting close to being ready for harvest. The plants look beautiful under the sun!
