Riding uphill all the way home with 15lbs of fruit and veggies in your saddlebags isn’t so easy. But it’s healthful!
A flat of strawberries (it’s the end of the season and I can’t resist making more jam), radishes, carrots, rainbow chard, zucchini, broccoli, dill, and 48oz of local honey.
We had a fantastic time again this Sunday at the Milwaukie Farmers Market. We biked there and back (sorry, forgot to get bike photos), got some great produce (another half flat of strawberries! Hood River fruit this time!), had a bite to eat and listened to the music.
We always forget to bring our knives!
Tap roots galore. Amelia is loving these carrots in her lunch.
Much leaves, many green.
The band was kinda Cajun.
Long line at the crepe booth!
Tomato starts for days.
We went to the Milwaukie Farmer’s Market yesterday — it was the first market of the year, and they were packed! Only 2-3 actual farm stands were there, but I got some spring onions, rainbow chard, asparagus, radishes, strawberries, and small “Russian gold” potatoes. Not sure who’s going to eat all these radishes — I’m the only one who really likes them, so I guess me! — and I have NO idea what I’m going to do with these spring onions, but it’s nice to have the fresh produce back! Next weekend we’ll try to bike down.
Greens, radishes, and turnips
Chalk for the kids to draw with, yay!
Potatoes and baby turnips
Beets, asparagus, and strawberies, which were going FAST!
Wow that’s a lot of beets.
Carrots and spring onions
Our new favorite potato stand
Live music is always fun.
What are spring onions good for, anyway?
