We have been experiencing some seriously scorching temps. in Southern Ontario this summer. My crazy dog can barely handle a spin around the park without his tongue dragging on the ground, eager to jump into his pool as soon as we walk through the backyard gate (yes, Koda has his own pool).

Farmer's Markets are in full force in Southern Ontario. I am always amazed by what I see sitting on thier rustic little folding tables. An array of veggies and fruits...many of which I have cannot identify. Last year I discover jicama and kohlrabi. This year, garlic scapes. Garlic scapes are the shoots that grow up from the garlic bulb itself with a mild garlic favour and a texture similar to asparagus. I saw these bright green, tangled stems at the Locke St. Farmers Market and decided to bring them home. As it was nearing the end of the market, the farmer gave me a 2 for 1 deal!
