Early in the season we noticed that we passed a market garden, Treasure Valley Markets, on one of our nest routes, which we were very excited about. The nest we monitored near there failed, unfortunately, so we didn’t pass as often anymore, but recently Mara saw that the sign said this:
We knew that we needed to make time in our schedule to pick some strawberries, and on Saturday, we did.
They also had potatoes available, and rhubarb, so we got those as well. For supper I made maple salmon, the melt-in-your-mouth new potatoes, and a strawberry-spinach salad with ricotta. (The ricotta wasn’t very good on it, I’d recommend goat cheese instead.)
Mara took care of dessert, with strawberry-rhubarb crisp.
(The crisp topping was the same as here, doubled and without the nutmeg.)
We will hopefully make a return trip soon, and I hope they have more kinds of produce (raspberries, perhaps) available before I leave at the end of the month.
