First Local Corn and Tomatoes of the Season


Well my favorite local corn, hands down, comes from Graf Growers, conveniently located about 5 minutes from my house.  They open a farm stand for the summer, which just opened last week.  I was very happy to see in yesterday's newsletter that the first crop of their famous bi-color, hydro-chilled corn was available today.

I went over at about 9:45.   As I was walking through the crowded parking lot, one of the employees said to me "Well, we aren't out yet"." Apparently there had been people lined up on the street prior to the 9:00 opening.  Since they are located on a pretty dangerous curve in the road, they wisely decided to open the gate and let the corn stampede begin.

I picked up the tomatoes and some perfectly peppery fresh arugula at the farmer's market last night at Stan Hywet.  

I could eat fresh corn and tomatoes every day while they are in season.  And I might.
