Spring crops at your farmers' markets
The markets are livening up more and more every week. It was a rainy, stormy morning in Cincinnati but the parking lot at Findlay Market downtown filled by 8 AM nonetheless. As hoped for, strawberries and asparagus were available in abundance, along with lots of inexpensive plants to help get my 2010 annual garden started. The Hyde Park farmers market opens for the first time this season on Sunday, May 2nd.
Here's a way to find good places to eat when you're traveling. It's (appropriately) called Find Eat Drink, a website and an iPhone app. (I have a Droid but also an iPad, and hope it will work on the pad) Click on photo for link.
At the University of Cincinnati, I teach writing, reporting and research methods to journalism students as well as a course in mass communication.
I also write a "Healthy Foodie" column, with co-author Mary Ann Barnes, M.D., for the magazine Whole Living Journal, which is distributed in the Cincinnati metro area.
I'm a freelance food and travel writer, a dedicated exercise fanatic (have been since my 20s) and an avid gardener, reader, cook and moviegoer. I'm live in Cincinnati with my husband, George, and recently lost my sweet mother, who died peacefully at 91.
