Gunnar and bughut, I love artichokes any time of the year too but nothing like fresh artichokes to munch on for snack. Last year, I found some great baby artichokes that I sauteed. So yummy!
Jock, that's true. There is a lot of environmental impact from truck driving. It is a great concern when you see the hundreds of trucks that are transporting goods up north or down south.
singer4660, blueberries have been showing up here in LA too. I love fresh blueberries and it's so easy to take with you anywhere. Thank you also for the great ideas.
Here is a great salad recipe that is traditional but yet it has a summer twist with the fresh berries. Perfect for those blueberries that are showing up in markets!
