Farmers Market Begins!
Today is the first market of the season! It's been rainy and cold, and yes it's raining right now, but that rarely dampens the spirit of the farmers here in Alaska! We are so ready for anything fresh and green...you saw me last week grinding up nettles for pesto, for pete's sake! (I've gone through 2 jars already!) Last night I baked off a hundred or loaves to send with Irene to sell at the bakery booth. She'll also have apple rhubarb tarts, fresh, hot chocolate bread, cheddar scones...oh, I'm getting hungry!
