Saturday Market

“Through winter-time we call on spring,
And through the spring on summer call,
And when abounding hedges ring
Declare that winter’s best of all;
And after that there’s nothing good
Because the spring-time has not come….” –William Butler Yeats (1865-1939), from The Wheel

AsparagusNot cheap at $4 a bunch, but they beat out those tired spears from Mexico with the inedible woody ends that you might see at your local supermarket or Wal-Mart.


Have a great weekend, everyone!
