Backyard Feast

Still eagerly awaiting the official start of Pocket Farm's second annual One Local Summer, we got in another good practice this weekend. To celebrate Memorial Day, Son (with a little help and advice) made whole wheat hamburger buns:

We grilled burgers (bought from our dairy provider) alongside produce from the farmer's market (white sweet potatoes, asparagus, and a very special tomato):

And to drink? Mac Jack Hard Cider that we picked up from a winery in Vermont during our visit last summer.

Delicious! What a wonderful way to begin the summer.

Yum! Seeing your lovely food photos makes me even more sad that we can't get local produce here.

That looks wonderful! I can't wait for our CSA pickups to start.

Looks delicious!

We had a very similar meal recently... whole wheat potato rolls, local hamburg, potato & carrot salads, plus homemade elderberry wine. It's so satisfying to be able to eat so well from such a small foodshed (mostly the backyard except for the beef). What was even more satisfying was sharing the meal with friends.

Just a few weeks to go before OLS, I guess I better do a little planning (and make an official announcement!).
