Our markets aren't opening until June, which really isn't a problem as we have a later growing season in Eastern, WA.  The latest update is that we will see like above, some fresh produce being given out for free.  We've already seen farmers give out thousands of pounds of russet potatoes that were in storage from last fall that they didn't want to till under. I'm looking forward to it.

I asked my favorite farmer how they were doing, Their land is about 45 miles south of me. Labor getting dicey and the oddness of our weather made them toss out their usual succession planting schemes. Adjusting...

Massive bunch of glads, sunflowers, zinnia. ( I am NOT a flower arranger.)

 

Peaches, green beans, new potatoes, okra, tomatoes. Could have had cucumbers, assorted squash, lettuces, but i had all that here.

 

Veggie dinner tonight. Squash casserole, zucchini fritters, green beans with new potatoes, fried green tomatoes. Peaches over ice cream. Y'all come on.

Have not been able to get to farmers market but was gifted some incredible Oxnard strawberries and home grown cherry tomatoes. The scent; the taste - I think I dreamt about them last night.

So sketchy! My husband braved our usual farmers' market last week. No tomatoes at all. Very very good bicolor corn. Excellent Santa Rosa plums. Lousy underripe apricots. Delicious strawberries. Of course you couldn't pick the produce yourself, just had to rely on a pre-packed bag, and you couldn't peel back the corn husks to get a peek, either. But early corn is usually very sweet and worm-free from our favorite vendor. One of the largest vendors was absent, and that's where we get tomatoes and herbs. Surprising about the lack tomatoes, since some of our regular markets have been stocking decent heirlooms for the last few weeks. Ah well, it is what it is. These days it is best not to count on anything.

Photos from the little roadside stand I stop at when driving to my Dr’s office, he has a lot of peppers. Big tomatoes today, none of the little guys. This was around 4pm, so maybe I was scooped. I took a closer photo of a container of little green striped guys, are these Thai eggplants?

Not sure this is where this belongs.  Jessica volunteers as an admin on a FB page that her best friend started.  As a thank you, he gave her a box from Hungry Harvest - a company that delivers imperfect fruits and vegetables.  It was too much for her, so she is sharing with us:

She was allowed to pick what she wanted online before delivery.  Her haul included some comically large carrots and radishes:
