OK, so I've been here almost 5 years and have never visited the local farmers market.
Better late than never. Kale, turnips, beets and fresh eggs and I got some surprises like the turnip tops. They are edible and quite nutritious from what I read. Free food basically. Likewise with the beet tops. Super cut them off to save space, plus they get in the way. But the farmers have no use for them and so they come with it. Nice.
I set out to eat more purple food about 9 months ago but haven't been as successful as I'd like to be. But with the addition of beets, I think I may have found the magic. Beets are just wonderful. My new discovery.
Now they've got a regular customer out of me.
