Living Local, Part Two

Worcester County, where I live, leads the state in the number of farms.

Within a few miles from me, I enjoy visiting this farm.

How pleased I was to see that it is open!

It’s sweet corn time in Massachusetts!

Aw, shucks, I’ll buy a dozen.

In order to create a super fresh vegetarian meal, I add my own home grown cukes, tomatoes, arugala,

Green and yellow beans,

Swiss chard and kale. Colorful and nutritious. I’m grateful.

    1. Thanks Laurie. Yup, glad to say the rain didn’t do much damage! (However, my “Fourth of July” variety of tomatoes, so named because one is supposed to have tomatoes by that date, just this week has tomatoes. πŸ˜‰ )

  1. Everything looks so appetizing, Julie. It also reminded me that we have not had corn on the cob this year at all. The ears at the supermarket, if they even have any, don’t look appealing, yet they have been quite expensive. I hope we will find some before the season is over.

    1. I’m glad you liked my photos, Tanja. Corn takes up so much space! I don’t grow it at home. Growing up in Western Massachusetts, which is more rural, we had a huge garden with corn varieties planted to provide for us from this time of year right through September. Plus, it was fun to play hide and seek in the corn rows….;-)
