Farmers Market Again...Still the Same

Friends, Kitties, Woofies and Countrymen.  Today I got to the Farmer's Market again but a bit late at 1000 instead of 0745!  However I got my choosing of some Roma green beans, some red fingerling potatoes and one tomato.

I have already broken the green beans and they are in there cooking.  The house is awash in their fragrance.  Later when the beans start to get a bit more cooked, I will add the fingerling potatoes and cook it all together till the flavors marry.  I know I get downright poetic about my very simple extremely mundane veggie acquisitions at the Farmer's Market but man, I just don't buy these type of things, fresh, often enough.  I have taken the easy way out and relied on frozen veggies which are fine, of course.  However fresh is like winning the lottery or how I imagine that would be.  I never think to enter it so my chances of winning are pretty dim.  BUT when I put fresh veggies in my mouth and they take that trip down down down the stomach tube..ahhhh...

  2. We went to our farmer's market yesterday afternoon - yummy tomatoes and zucchini and yellow squash on hand, and a couple of bunches of scallions. Oh, and some peaches that still need to finish ripening. Fresh veggies are oh so nice (even Simba has decided the Indoor varieties of Friskies foods with some "greens" in there are his favorites).

  3. Think I'll try to remember to go to the Monday one at our local mall. It's smaller than the big one downtown, but there are usually 6 farmers there with their stuff. Can't beat fresh veges!!

  5. Mmm yum! You make my mouth water :-) I love fresh veggies. I especially love to cut fresh bell peppers and eat them with or without dressing. Either way is good :-)

  6. Nothing better than fresh green beans - and locally grown is best! One of these days, we just may make a trip to "your" Farmers Market.

  7. Roma green beans are Sab's favorites, but none of the farmers here grow them! It's even hard to find the seeds anymore. In your honor, I have planted two rows of beans today! xxoo Patty

  9. I am seriously jealous you can get Romano Beans locally. The squirrels pulled up my Romano Bean seedlings 3 times before I covered them with chicken wire and replanted again (after having to place a special order with Burpee).

    The local farm stands seldom have them, and the group farmers market is a bit away from my usual driving routes.

  10. We have never tasted Romano Green Beans. No wonder we can't agree on the length of time to cook them - he he . We just had green beans tonight from the Farmer's Market and they were babies compared to yours. So goood, young, and tender. Some day I hope to find the kind you are talking about just so I can taste them.
