Wow! Number three already? We are so established.  And we’re very excited about the delicious fruits and vegetables appearing at our farmers markets each week — just this morning I spotted both snap peas and strawberries.  Hooray!  With the abundance of summer produce in mind, we’ve chosen a quirky and contemplative guide to cooking fresh vegetables.  We hope you’ll enjoy Farmer John as much as we do.
