Food For Thought

Cabbage and beets made their debut at the DeKalb Farmers Market in Smithville behind Ace Hardware last week. The beets went quick, though, so get there early if you want to snag a bunch. Mounds of fresh lettuce, green onions, kale, and fresh herbs make for stunning salads. Baked goods, jams and jellies, barbecue, artisan crafts, flower arrangements, and handmade soaps are always in season. Fill up your garden with vegetable and herb plants. Try out some garlic scapes, the immature flowering stalk of hardneck garlic varieties. They'll only be around for a week or two!
