Hi-ho, the derry-o...

On my recent visit to Tennessee, one of my stops was my friend Tiffany's garden.  It was amazing.  At the beginning of the summer, she dug up a small section of her backyard, threw down some seeds, and now she has more vegetables than she knows what to do with. I am rarely jealous of others...but this garden made me green with envy.  

Unfortunately, jen and I only have a tiny 3x3ft patch of dirt behind our condo.  And unfortunately, the HOA has something rude to say about everything jen plants in it. So gardening is not really an option in our life right now.  

So, in an attempt to turn my jealousy into inspiration, jen and I took the scooters down to the Burbank Farmer's Market on Saturday.  We got some great stuff!  One of our favorite finds was the itty-bitty baby eggplants.  We got a pound of them for $1.50, and a pound of string beans for $1. We cooked them up that night with some tofu & Chinese spices.  It was definitely our best meal of 2008.    All for under $5.  How can you beat that?  

So go green...buy local...support California farmers...and eat baby eggplant.  That is our advice for this lovely Monday afternoon.  

**Update - jen has informed me that our dirt patch is 4x4ft.
