Summer just started, and it's time to enjoy the bounty of the land at the local Farmers' Markets or Coops. I was just at the Columbia Farmers' market and got these deals: a bushel o yeller crookneck squash $5, 3/4 bushel o maters, $5, 3 cantelopes fer $1, and 15 lbs of Vidalia onions fer $15 (expensive, last year they were 50 lbs for $15). The peaches were outrageous, due to the hard freeze the SE had, at $16 per half bushel basket. Local Silver Queen corn, unsprayed, which is headed to the grill tonight, was 4 per $1. I looked, but did not find jalapeno peppers, usually around $5 a small case, to pickle in mason jars fer beer drinkin.
