What is Fresh this Spring!

Springtime is the best time for FRESH veggies and fruit. I took a trip to my local flea/farmers market and purchased one grocery bag full some 'right off the truck' veggies for under $8. The trick to buying local produce is to know what's in season ahead of time! We purchased tomatoes, carrots, a variety of peppers, radishes, and some fresh limes.

Here's a quick list of what to buy this spring:
-Carrots (very tasty, and easy to grow in your yard)
-Peas (yum!)
-Artichokes (which I've tried to work with but have been unsuccessful, if you have a tip let me know!)
-Strawberries (easy to grow yourself!)
-Blueberries (I love to go handpick them!)

Find local farms, Farmer's Markets, Co-Ops, U-Pick-Em farms in your area here
