Name Your Favorite Veggie or Fruit and You Might Win $75!
The Co-op Food Stores are running a perfect little summertime giveaway this week: Go to their Facebook page and in the comments section of this post, name your favorite local vegetable or fruit and tell them about your favorite local farm. They'll draw the winner of a $75 Co-op gift card from among all the commenters tomorrow, Friday, at 4 pm and notify him or her in the comments.
The giveaway itself is a nice idea, but if you want a long, cool drink of summertime goodness, check out the comments. Odes to sweet corn, cherry tomatoes, blueberries, peppers, cucumbers, apples, strawberries... All grown locally at the farms we're extraordinarily fortunate to have around us. Even if you have nothing to say (which is doubtful), go take a look! And then head for your (or even better -- someone else's) favorite farmstand.
