Today, we made a quick trip to the Binghamton, New York farmers market on a day that turned out to be busy with more out of town visitors coming to see my elderly mother in law.
Spring has rushed by so quickly that I was surprised to see some of these veggies still available.
Fiddleheads are the sprouts of fiddlehead ferns. In this stage they are edible, and some like them for a nutty taste they liken to a cross between asparagus and spinach, with a hint of mushrooms. I admit to not liking them, but it's been years, and maybe I should try them again.
It surprises me, because I love asparagus.
And they were all being sold by the same vendor,side by side.
I love upstate New York at this time of year. The growing season has just begun, as we bask in warm weather. The mountains are blanketed in trees with fresh leaves. And there is so much promise in the air.
So much promise.
Spring has renewed us.
