Visit the Farmer's Market

I love fresh, organically grown, local vegetables.  I'm afraid of Farmer's Markets.  Any one else see the incongruity here?  This is why I love my Absolute Organics box...I get the food I love without having to go to the Farmer's Market.

Why am I afraid of Farmer's Markets, you ask?  Because I don't know what I am doing.  I don't know what arugula is, really.  I don't know what to do with collards.  No, I don't want a sample of your homemade goat cheese with fennel.  Farmer's Markets overwhelm me, I get self-conscious, and usually run out not having purchased anything.

But, since this blog is about me growing, I have trips to the Farmer's Market on the list.  Wednesday, I picked up some early tomatoes (are they fruit?) and some spaceship-shaped zucchini that the farmer assured me are just like regular zucchini.  Next task...another gluten-free zucchini bread trial. :)
