It’s such a shame that I don’t have a digital camera to take pictures of today’s colorful farmers market haul from the Hope St. Farmers Market.
I wrote a newsletter for the Southside Community Land Trust, a Providence-based community garden and farm, and part of my payment was a market credit at their Hope St. booth. Because it’s nearing the end of the season and I wanted to get the most of my credit, I bought some stuff I might not otherwise buy….purple beans, for example, and a bottle of homemade fertilizer made from fish emulsion.
I also bought regular green beans, Swiss chard, basil, salad greens, cherry tomatoes, and GASP…..spinach. I snagged the last bunch. I can’t wait to eat it. I might even defy the fearmongers and eat it raw.
