ReLocavore: Redefining "local"

A locavore moves from Wisconsin to New Hampshire and rediscovers what "local" means.

This week in veg: the vegetables have arrived!

4 Comments

As you may have noticed, this week in veg has been on a hiatus for the past two weeks. This is because Sam and I were in Wisconsin and we got to give away our CSA to some fortunate friends of ours. We are back this week, and while we were gone the vegetables seem to have arrived in Vermont! Looking back over previous weeks, we had lots of greens and one or two small and large groups. But this week we finally see real vegetables: peas, cabbage, beets the size of Apple. All those wonderful things that show up this time of the year and require a little more sun and a little more water to get the right size. I’m hungry!

  1. New potatoes – yum!

    • I’m looking forward to them too. I’m waffling between old-fashioned potato salad or roast potatoes on the grill. What do you like to do with them? I should also mention we’re in mid midst of a heat wave and I’m trying to avoid heading up the house.

      • We’re in the same heatwave and I don’t turn the oven or stove on. I love to oil them and put them on the grill. Then I toss with a simple mustard sauce.

      • We ended up making potato salad and boiling them briefly for 8 minutes. It warmed up the house a little, but not too bad. We have a dehumidifier to help.
