M N Thursday, September 15, 2011 Tri-Coun News Kim,oMN Shop your local 'garden grocery' Rinse under clean, running water just before preparing or eating. Don't use soap or detergent as it can get into produce and make you sick. Rub briskly by scrubbing with a clean brush or with hands to clean the surface. Dry with a clean cloth or paper towel. Farmers' markets offer a color- ful variety of fruits and vegetables which are rich in vitamins, miner- als and phytochemicals. Visit your local farmer's market to get a little exercise, visit with your neighbors and eat well. By Debbie Botzek-Linn, U of M Extension Farmers' markets offer a vari- ety of fresh, locally-produced fruits, vegetables and other food products in a festive atmosphere. They are a great place to shop and fortunately for us, in Minnesota, they are expanding and becom- ing more readily accessible in our local communities. If possible, plan to go to the market early for the best selection. Walk through the entire market before you buy to view the selec- tion and then return to the ven- dors of choice. Aim to buy foods you'll eat now when they are fresh. Select an amount you can use within a short time, especially if you don't plan to can or freeze any of your pur- chases. Asking to buy a smaller amount is acceptable and most farmers will divide amounts. If you have questions about a certain fruit or vegetable, be sure to ask the farmer. This is one of the advantages of purchasing directly from the grower. Most will be happy to tell you how it was grown, cared for and how to make the best selection. Many will even share a favorite recipe. Go directly home from the market or plan to bring a cooler for storage. Fruit and vegetable qual- ity will decline rapidly in a hot car. Wash produce thoroughly before you use it, not when you bring it home. Fresh produce has a natural protective coating that helps keep in moisture and fresh- ness. Washing produce before storage causes it to spoil faster. Remove and discard outer leaves.

I remember the day well as do most Americans, and where I was exactly, when I heard the news of the attack. I was staying at my brother Brad's house in the Brooten area at the time. I had to run and check on my car that was being repaired. ! turned on the radio and heard the news. At first I thought it was a radio drama that was like "War of the Worlds." Unfortunately, like all Americans, we learned it wasn't a radio "program" or a bad dream, but a real attack on our nation. It was our Pearl Harbor. It was a sunny morning in Min- nesota that day 10 years ago with temperatures in the the upper 50s and lower 60s. It looked like another beautiful fall day in both Minnesota, New York City, Wash- ington, D.C., and in Pennsylvania. All of these locations bad sunshine and it looked like just another great late summer or early fall day. The temperature in New York City at 8:46 a.m. was 64 degrees. In that split second our country would change and nearly 3,000 victims and their families would forever be changed. The weather this past Sunday was very similar in New York City to what it was 10 years ago. There was sunshine this past Sunday, and temperatures were again in the 60s as nearly 3,000 names were read under a sunny sky. Here in Minnesota it was sunny as well just like it was that shocking morning. Much was the same in terms of weather, but nothing was the same 10 years later. We are older and no longer innocent. Hopefully, we are a bit wiser from what we had all gone through as a nation. To the innocent people who died that day, and to the brave first respond- ers who ran into the Twin Towers and not away from them, we solute you. We will never forget what you did 10 years ago on that beautiful September morn. By the way, the fall colors are continuing to get more vibrant.

Weather history: On this date (Sept. 12) in 1964, the "earliest offi- cial measurable snowfall in Min- nesota with 0.3 inches at Interna- tional Falls." Weather fact: The next total solar eclipse will take place over Minnesota in 2099. It will be vis- ible in the Twin Cites, depending on the weather. Most weather sys- tems blow from west to east.
