Year round farmers' markets have a distinct upside: year-round fresh produce. Without a hard freeze yet, there's still late summer veggies available. Sure, tomatoes seem to be limited to the grape and cherry kinds, but still... this is November. The glut of the large peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers from August and September sometimes makes you overlook the steady production of the hot peppers, cherry tomatoes, and pickling cukes that seem to keep right on producing their tiny versions up until the first frost.
Kind of felt like a pickling day yesterday, so I made a batch of bread and butter pickles. Seriously, though, how much longer will you find cucumbers in DC?
