Since I picked up some fresh New Jersey produce from Wilson Farm last week, I’ve been craving more fresh beets and lettuce…I’ve been scouring the internet, trying to perhaps find a close-by farmers market that’s open, but so far I’ve come up empty.
Yes, I could go back to Wilson Farm, but it’s a 20-30 minute drive and it seems counterproductive to waste gasoline to get produce that’s grown a little bit more “local” than most of the stuff sold at the grocery store. After all, craving “green” isn’t just a matter of food, it’s also a matter of saving resources too.
I just cannot wait until june when the area farmers markets will be starting. AND hopefully my garden this year will be more bountiful and last longer into the cooler weather. So much to learn, it’s exciting!
In the meantime, if I find myself closer to Wilson Farm next week, I might try to get back there again for some more fresh produce!
