Here comes the farmers market. From the LATIMES, some great farmers market pictures. 

Canning– the next new (old) thing. From the NYT, a nice overview on all things canning. A great on line reference is at the government site National Center for Home Preservation, here

Soft Shell crabs. From the Washington Post, an article by Jane Black about soft shell crabs and their taste ant timing for the perfect crab. 

From the WSJ, an article on the wonderful edible weed? Video and a good overview on dandelion greens and purslane. 

Have a great day,

The above picture was taken at the CIA event a few years ago. These are great events if you have never been. I have three years worth of pictures on my flicker account if you care to see what happens. I am planning on bloging about the past years events as soon as I finish launching my recipe website A Flash in the Pan. It looks like Monday at this point. Sigh.

This capitalistic outlook is a good thing and is why the US will rebound from our money doldrums.
