The summer food pyramid

IMG_4318A perfect summer meal, even in a less than perfect summer.  The beans were amazing, the corn sweet and tender, and the tomatoes delicious on a cracker with some of Nina’s goat cheese and a hefty crank of black pepper.

Fortunately some of my nearby farmers have managed to harvest a few tomatoes.  They are dear, but worth it.  This summer, more than ever, make it a point to support your local farmer.  With the disastrous weather we’ve been having, your local farmer needs your support more than ever.

    Yes, this is the time to support our local farmers as much as possible. I had a similar meal a while back – raw corn, sliced tomatoes I managed to find despite the problems, and some of the last raw peas. It just says summer all over.

    Hail to the local farmer! We have 3 prominent local (within 15 mi radius) farmers & every weekend I stop. In fact that’s where I’m headed after I write this comment! Can’t wait for more tomato sandwiches and steamed corn on the cob & those tiny little squash about the size of a ping pong ball, can’t remember the name of them, OMG are they GOOD!!!! gotta go!!!
