Wild and wilder

Now that I have my own garden, the Saturday trip to the Cooperstown Farmer’s Market is more about being sociable than anything else, especially this time of year. Later in the season, there will be berries, which are not yet part of my scheme. And the guy with the greenhouse will have tomatoes earlier—and later—than I do. But on the first market day of the season, it’s pretty much all about leafy greens and kitschy crafts, neither of which I need.

A few people had ramps, a wild early onion I’d read about but never cooked with.000_0629

Not exactly the kind of thing to gentle a bountiful harvest of weedy greens…. but baked together in a pie they turned out to be pretty darn good.000_0625
