I surprised myself by buying some beets, a vegetable I've never cooked before (for fear of having to actually eat it). But the cute old farmer assured me the beets were, "just dug yesterday." I guess that means they'll be extra good. We'll see if I can find a recipe that doesn't seem too scary :)
I meant to do something with the cherries, but we ended up just eating them straight out of the bag--and they were delicious! I can't tell you how many years it's been since I've eaten a cherry off it's stem; I'd probably have to measure it in decades :)
We sliced up one of the cucumbers and ate it with our lunch, and my 6 year-old declared that the cucumber from the farmer's market was much better than the one we got from our little home garden (a plant in a pot)...hummm, I thought our little home-grown cucumber was pretty good...
And I'm especially excited about the beautiful purple bell peppers. They smell so good! They are going to be delicious!
