Mid March Farmers Market

Winter farmer's market, Binghamton, New York, March 10.

You can still find some late fall crops from last year - apples, garlic, parsnips, carrots, and potatoes.

But joining them are items like local honey, meats, and dairy products.

And, in the past year, one vendor has started to sell mushrooms.  These are a most delicious addition to mushroom lovers like me and my spouse - so fresh, and so good.

This reminds us that we are negligent in doing our seed inventory, and preparing for the gardening season ahead.  We are downsizing - only getting one community garden plot instead of two. 

Yes, a local farmers market can remind us of our own garden, slumbering under a blanket of snow.

We've ordered our onions (will probably get our seeds locally this year) and dream of the warming days ahead.

  2. Joys of gardening and harvesting one's produce is just immense; I have a small number of pots on my balcony where I grow some herbs and greens! Its very satisfying to see them grow
