Todayโ€™s the last market of the season. We joined the Iowa City Farmers Market in fall 2009 when dad was laid off of work. It was a rough time but you all helped our family through. We expanded a small garden to what we have now and had no idea what a big part of our lives the market would become. Thank you to all of you for continuing to support us and to Paula for this wonderful family photo.

Our customer stopped by and showed us what she does with our malabar spinach! โ€” Stuffed salmon: lightly saute the malabar leaves with garlic. Mix with some cream cheese and stuff into the fatty part of salmon. Seared with buttercream on the grill and seasoned with spices. Scrumptious!

Itโ€™s been raining so hard we havenโ€™t been out in the garden as much. Hereโ€™s a peak at our pride and joy - our beautiful hanging garden. Aside from the popular long beans, we also harvest luffa sponge squash and winter melon. Bringing these to the market tomorrow. Soup season is upon us as the harvest season gets colder.

Our first week at the market with Rice Paddy Herb (top left) and second week with Taro (top right). With tomatoes and a bit of garlic, these make a perfect, simple stir fry. But if youโ€™re really adventurous, then you can add a variety of other ingredients and make a Vietnamese soup called Canh Chua. Pineapple, shrimp, bean sprouts, celery, okra, etc. There are three dishes every world traveler must try in Vietnam. Pho (Vietnamese Soup Noodle), Com Suon (Porkchop & Rice), and Canh Chua (Vietnamese (Sweet &) Sour Soup). Restaurants are a hit or miss but if you get the chance to dine in with a local family, especially in the country where the veggies and fruit are cut garden to table, youโ€™ll be craving Vietnamese food for the rest of your life. Every family has their own recipe passed and altered through the generations. Aah, writing this post makes me miss our family in Vietnam. Craving some canh chua now.
