The local strawberries have started. They are not quite at their peak sweetness, but this week's hot weather should sweeten them up. We have been enjoying Quebec asparagus. They will soon be over, but with new strains of strawberries, I'll be enjoying them all summer.
This time of year, no visit to Atwater Market is complete without gawking at the multitude of flowers for sale - both cut flowers and for flowers for planting in gardens. Now that I just have a couple of pots on a balcony, I linger longer.
