Recipes from Easton Farmer's Market Cooking Demonstrations

Chef Laura here! I am thrilled that Local Matters has been invited to be a part of the Easton Farmer’s Market again this summer.

Weed Out the Competition

Weeds are a problem in your garden for many reasons.

They can steal the precious sunlight from your tomatoes, soak up soil nutrients that should be in your cucumbers, and create a secondary or overwintering home for the beetles chewing on your cabbage.

That’s right, gardening! It’s never too early to start thinking about what to grow this spring... 'tis the season!
