Eating locally grown produce is the freshest, healthiest way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into our meals. Although there is not much available in Wisonsin yet, the local farmers’ markets are beginning to open in the Milwaukee area. I think it’s fun to plan a meal around what’s available when I go.
My husband likes to grow vegetables in our own small “farm” in the yard. He planted over the weekend – a nice assortment of tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplant, and some herbs. This is as close as we usually get to an actual farm!
