I can't believe it is already mid-May, and with the warm weather we have been having, locally grown produce will soon be for sale at our local farmer's markets. I was recently in New York City and visited a farmer's market and was envious of all the variety of produce they had to offer. I can't wait until the local crops are available so we can enjoy some of our own local delights.
