Since I was in Harlingen for New Years, I knew I had to go to their farmer’s market and see what was available for sale. I barely made it over there, and didn’t even get to finish as many vendors were packing up before I got to see their tables. Oh well, I’ll see ya next time. I chatted with a nice couple from Bayview that sold me a very nice bunch of peppery greens in a mesclun mix. I ate half of it that night for dinner, and wow is it peppery! Talk about flavor. I really need to get some of those growing at home before the “cool weather” is gone and we are back to hot days for the next 10 months.
I also bought a pumelo which turned out to be far too pulpy and not particularly juicy. One vendor had phalaenopsis orchids for $10, so I bought 2 of those to put in my room and start to clean up the air from all the electronics. It’ll take a while, but those orchids do a good job at improving air quality.
