Veggies

Just back from extended shopping trip: the Aisian Market, then the produce stand, then Whole Foods, with another stop or two this afternoon.

The carrots and scallions—no, make that SCALLIONS—are from the Asian market. Both are cultivars unfamiliaar to me. I like the look of the almost-cylindrical carrots, and they seem tender. The scallions on steroids are just amazing. No idea what they are like: standard scallion taste, I would imagine.

From the produce stand, I got the eggplant, the (enormous) zucchini, and the very fresh and young bitter melon, all of which will go into the next batch of grub. The bitter melon has been especially good.

I should add I got an enormous bag of fresh vegetables, including 2-3 lbs of persimons, for $22. (Persimmons at Whole Foods are $5/lb. At the produce stand, 89¢/lb.)

UPDATE: Super-scallion and regular scallion, side by side:
