Farmers' Market Bounty - March 24

I forgot to bring my camera to the market yesterday so this photo at home will have to suffice. I am planning on grilling the asparagus and green garlic (what looks like extra large spring onions) and will post that recipe later.

The herb bunch is Persian mint, which is similar to spearmint (my favorite of the mints) but has a somewhat citrusy flavor, which is why it was paired with the kumquats and other citrus fruits in a salad that will show up in a few days.

But my most exciting find was the fresh lemongrass (to the left of center) which I will use in a Thai soup or curry to appear in a future post. There is absolutely nothing like that flavor and I can't wait to make that recipe!
