Radishes

Radishes from the garden. Tomato plants are going in the ground today.

Thursday at the farmers market

Today at lunch time I went outside to take a walk and I stumbled upon the little farmers market at 115th and Broadway. It’s there every Thursday but I always seem to forget about it. Today I crossed the street and found two big tables covered in bunches of nice, skinny asparagus. It pretty much made my day. I heard rumors that there’s been asparagus at Union Square for the past few weeks, but you have to get up early to get it. I was hoping to find some last Saturday at my little neighborhood farmers market but things aren’t really quite in full swing there yet. At the other end of the block was a table piled high with beautiful radishes. Radishes are one of those foods that I could never decide if I liked or not until I learned to eat them slathered with butter. Now I can’t get enough of them.
