On Tuesday I got my first CSA pick-up of the season, and in a short while I will be off to opening day at the Belmont Farmer's Market. I know that some nearby towns' markets have been going for a week or more (e.g. Arlington, Lexington). So, how's it going? Has our rainy spring affected what you are bringing home with you? Any wonderful new vendors at your local market? Disappointments or good news about your CSA?
For my part, the Waltham Fields Community Farm got off to a great start this week. The many, many types of greens that were available clearly have benefited from the weather, though the sugar snap peas were a bit sparse due to some insect pest that got at them. They've dropped the add-on egg share due to the lack of a supplier, and there was no cheese available this week (though it is supposed to start next week). The perennial herb patch was spectacular, though, better than I have ever seen it before.
So, fellow Hounds, how has eating local season been so far for you?
