Atkinson’s Farm grows . . . the cutest babies ever. . . and of course, yummy, yummy fresh food.
Lots of yummies in this post! Got to make a trip to Atkinson Farm on spring-cypress (North Houston). Little dude’s family happens to make that place run. So, when his grammy rolled up on the 4-wheeler with boxes of fresh vegetables, we took a minute to let him play around. (plus – I don’t think his granddad was going to let me off the farm before we took a picture of his grandson & his vegetables! just kidding of course – sort of;o)).
Prickly eggplant is way more fun than icing and cake?? whatever works. The freshly picked vegetables looked so much prettier than what you see at the grocery. And, I can attest to the fact that they tasted soooo much sweeter and crispier and yummier. They generously sent me off with a box of goodies. The corn above posed breifly before it was devoured by my family for dinner that night. We also made a very yummy squash casserole with all the summer squash. If you don’t have a local farmer’s market that you love . . . they frequent some of the larger ones like the Farmer’s Market in Grogan’s Mill here in The Woodlands. OR you can just go to Atkinson Farm and buy whatever you need whenever you need. They have a store front right on the farm that is open all week. They also have blueberry picking and seasonal activities for the kids! I think you can go and pick your own vegetables any day? Check with them though. . .
Just found this link looking for something else . . . it has a list of common fresh produce found at a Farmer’s Market & when you click on the notepad just left of the item it takes you to a page of recipes for that vegetable or fruit! I like it so much that I’m sharing it:o)
