new vegetables, old

Another trip to the Noe Valley farmers’ market yesterday, and suddenly, it’s summer: baby zucchini have joined the tableau that last week screamed “Spring!”

As ever, northern California’s produce schedule seems just about right to me, who started gardening in Austin, but almost unbearably wrong to J-P, who started in Boston.

On Wednesday, J-P texted me to ask if we had potatoes. We did, but I wasn’t sure about their condition. A quick peek in the pantry confirmed my fears.

So J-P picked up some more on his way home. Liza found a use for our old potatoes while we waited for the more palatable ones to bake.

When we drove across the country in January, we stopped in Texas, and Liza learned that I grew up off of Old Potato Road. She’s been fascinated with that name ever since. She even found me a song about it, by Charlie Cheney.
