Look at these crazy things! Garlic scapes are the plant that grows out of a garlic bulb. According to notwithoutsalt (a beautiful food and photo blog), “Young garlic scapes are tender and delicious. I often describe the texture to that of a green bean but the flavor is unmistakable – similar to mature garlic but much more mellow.” Apparently they’re a staple in Korean cooking, as we were told by a patron that day at the Chickadee Creek Farm tent.
The bees from Tassot Apiaries. Besides all kinds of delicious honey, they have homemade beeswax candles and scented soaps.
Some of you may recognize this face if you pictured it on a woman riding a bicycle…. sweet tunes in the plaza!
A-ma-zing cheeses from Cherry Grove Farm in Lawrenceville, NJ. We bought some of the Toma Primavera and made some kick-ass mac ‘n’ cheese. We also picked up some of that lavender honey goat cheese at the front of the board- ridiculously good.
Snapdragon bouquets from Chickadee Creek Farm.
Colorful umbrellas line the plaza for an open-air lunch at the market.
This little guy was enjoying a rest before I woke him up!
French breakfast radishes from Stonehedge Farm. They also brought “sacred basil” that day, which is a variety of tulsi sometimes referred to as Holy Basil (often used in Thai cooking).

Just playing around with some different focuses. Which one do you like better?
Also taken at the Manasquan Reservoir.
Taken at the Manasquan Reservoir in Howell, NJ. What a lovely place!
Please don’t hold it against me that I didn’t take any pictures on Wednesday. I’ve duly flogged myself for such an offense and offer the following photographs of the Princeton Farmer’s Market as sacrifices of repentance.
These beautiful bachelor buttons and the full shot below are of Longview Flowers of Lumberton, NJ. Here’s a short youtube clip of this vendor from Princeton Farmer’s Market : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqwaQKSAl_Q
I’m pretty sure these lovely garlic bulbs were at the Chickadee Creek Farm booth. They’re from Pennington, NJ. Check out their site!
If my memory serves me, these delicious strawberries and even more INCREDIBLE sugar snap peas (I’m not kidding) are from Fruitwood Orchards in Monroeville, NJ. These guys are super friendly and have brought some wonderful products to this market.
Terhune Orchards put out these great big buckets of peonies. So beautiful. Apparently they’ve also started making their own wine!
I like the way the green light is radiating.
Yesterday was seriously an amazing day for photography (as you saw from G’s debut). Check out these peonies from a nearby apartment!
So you’ve seen plenty of D around here, but the G has been missing from D&G. Here I am to resolve the issue with some of my latest shots. Enjoy!
I was playing around with the focus on my portrait lens and took this picture.
I rather like it.
