  • Garden fresh items make a tasty cauliflower salad

     I stopped in at the Carroll County Cooperative Extension office last week and was greeted with the most beautiful display of fresh vegetables. 

    You never know what’s behind those doors when you go there, but oh, the most pleasant people, displays and information is right there at your finger tips.  Jim Graves was the person showing his beautiful vegetables and you can try some for yourself if you go to the Farmer’s Market every Wednesday at the courthouse and Saturdays at Hometown Pizza. If you don’t go, you are truly missing out.
