I was so excited to go to the Farmer's Market this morning for the 1st time this year!
Although there were only two farmers, one being the organic farm we will be getting our CSA farm share from, the meat guy and a few family bakeries, it was still exciting to get out and see what they had. The farmers had lettuce greens, radishes and lots of starter veggies, herbs and flowers. And best of all, STRAWBERRIES!
Although we have a beautiful strawberry patch of our own, they are not growing fast enough yet, so we bought some from each farmer. The organic ones were much better then the other farmers and we ate almost all of them before we even made it home.
We will be doing yard work today, so I whipped up a refreshing strawberry lemonade!
I cut the peel from one lemon, and blended the lemon with 15 or so strawberries and a heaping spoonful of Raw honey and a cup of water.
(We have a Vitamix, it was worth every penny we paid, it gets used at least once a day in our house. )
Then I poured it over ice, yum! So refreshing!
We do not have any big plans for this holiday weekend. I have a baby shower to go to tomorrow, otherwise we will be hanging around the house and maybe walking in the woods later in the evening when it cools off. Now I am off to mulch the garden while the boys play in the kiddy pool and Silas naps in the stroller next to me :)
Wishing you all a lovely and safe weekend!
